Gardena Valley (Ladin: Gherdëina, Italian: Val Gardena) is in the Dolomites, in South Tyrol.
Gardena Valley is surrounded by numerous mountains. The Dolomites of Gardena Valley comprise the following group of mountains: Odle, Puez, Sella and Sassolungo. “These mountain ranges are the most exciting and picturesque of the entire Dolomites. With the exception of the Sassolungo and the Boe they stand behind the Sexten Dolomites, the Marmolada and the Pala group, but they excel in terms of fragmentation, age and impressiveness. They are the beloved destinations of mountain climbers enthusiasts of the Dolomites.”
In the south there are the Sassolungo group (3181 m), the Monte Pana, the Alpe di Siusi with the Denti di Terra Rossa (2653) and the Sciliar area (2564 m).
