Monte Campigoletti is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.052m (6,732ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige, in northern Italy. During the World War I, one of the most fierce battles was fought on its slopes.
The road to the summit is gravel. It’s called Kaiser Karl strasse and was built in 1916. It’s closed to motor vehicles today. It’s pretty narrow, steep, full of stones and loose gravel, and can be impassable in winters and after rains.
There are many excellent photo opportunities. Don’t forget your camera! At the summit there’s a cemetery. It’s one of more than 40 cemeteries from World War I on Sette Comuni plateau. The road continues to Monte Ortigara (at 2106 m), but nowadays is impassable.
