Plose

Plose, one of the highest roads of Italy

The Plose is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.562m (8,406ft) above the sea level, located in the Trentino-South Tyrol region of Italy. It's one of the highest mountain roads of the country.

Located in the heart of the Dolomites, the road to the pass is called Via Panoramica Dolomiti/Dolomiten Panoramaweg. It’s a gravel road, very narrow, and closed in winters. This road gets worse as you get nearer to the top.

The climb is pretty steep. Near the summit there’s a mountain hut known as Plosehütte (Rifugio Plose). Starting from Strada Provinciale 29 (SP-29), the road is 9.2 km long. The drive offers very good views.
