Mountains dot many parts of the of South Tyrol landscape. Many of these mountains belong to the Alps, which extend through many Central European nations. In this mountain chain, there is a smaller group called the Ortler Alps. In this group, which is considered the centre of the Italian Alps, there is a mountain called the Ortler, which rises 3 905 m above sea level, and is the highest peak in the Ortler Alps.
"SULDEN TOWN at 1900 m."
The holiday at sulden was one of the best we had in the alps.The town at 1900 m is a nice place to be.
We remain there for two weeks in a apartment (photo), and we shall return sometime later.
There are nice walks to make and the nature is beautiful.
Let us make a trip!
