Nature Reserve Puez - Odle

Beyond that is the rocky range of Luson and the relief of Plose, which are of quarziferous Filladi origin, whilst to the west the porphyric rocky Resciesa juts out from the Odle. From this variety of geological structures a corresponding variety of shapes and rural aspects is derived.

The typical tabular structure of the grey, uniform plateau of Puez contrasts with the slender, bold shapes of the "Pizes dl Cier", Odles, Sassongher and Sas de Pütia.
This geologic variability is enriched by figures of remarkable beauty such as amphitheatres, caves, natural arches, rock pinnacles and strangely eroded shapes which, as in the case of Col dala Sonê, fill visitors with admiration and awe.

The flora is also varied and with an abundance of rare varieties. It is characterised by the dwarf rhododendron, the artemisia and the buttercup. The fauna is well represented with some of the most typical mountain species, from the chamois to the marmot, and from the mountain pheasant to the golden eagle.

The tourist offices Alta Badia organize every week guided excursions to the nature reserve Puez - Odle.
