Parent rangeEastern Alps

It is located between the Monte Panarotta (16 km) from Trento and Rolle Pass, for a length of some 70 km. It is bounded southwards by the Valsugana, by the Val di Fiemme from the north, the Val di Cembra from the west and the Primiero and Vanoi eastwards.

The chain is mostly made of porphyry rocks. It was the site of fierce mine warfare on the Italian Front in the First World War.

The north-eastern part in the massif is part of the Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino Natural Park. Near the Rolle Pass, at 2,000 m altitude, are the small lakes of Colbricon, home of pre-historic settlements dating to the Neolithic age.
