Nature Reserve Puez-Odle 

The Puez-Odle-Rasciesa Nature Reserve occupies a total area of over 23,000 acres comprising mainly rocky uplands (average altitude 2,500 m) in the northwestern Dolomites. It is a region of exceptional beauty and a wealth of natural treasures. Above all it is a region of contrasts, with jagged rocky crests, the bizarre products of erosion and interesting karst formations on the one hand, and wide open uplands and woods on the other.

The park was established for reasons of environmental protection, research, education in the field of ecology, and also recreation.

The Nature Reserve has a number of core areas, where no man-made structures or infrastructure are permitted. Visitors also have to accept a number of restrictions. Above all private transport is not allowed, and visitors are not permitted to pick flowers or mushrooms, or to collect minerals or fossils. Care must be taken not to damage the biotopes. Such regulations are essential if the Nature Reserve is to be preserved in all its variety for future generations.

Information on guided excursions at the Val Gardena Tourist Offices and the Val Gardena Mountain Guide Offices.
