Torri del Vajolet

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 30 September 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The "Torri del Vajolet" (Vajolet towers) are six summits in the Dolomites in Italy. It is a bizarre rock formation in the center of the rose garden group in South Tyrol. They are divided into three north and three south towers, each having a separate base. The three southern towers (the one's in the image) are the better known, and are one of the showpieces of the Italian Dolomites. They are known as climbing mountains. Some of the routes are among the most famous routes throughout the Alps and are in accordance with the season well attended.
