overview




This mountain is part of the vast plateau of Folgaria . The reliefs of this plateau are more rounded than the nearby Pasubio but not less interesting.
Along the ridge of the Dosso del Sommo and Campomolon there are peaks a little challenging for those who practice ski mountaineering: Spiz Tonezza and Monte Maggio.
During the first World War, Mount maggio represented the border, the watershed between the war on Piccole Dolomites ,Pasubio in front of the Highlands. So far, in fact, arrived control of territory by the Austro Hungarian fortresses placed on the heights of Folgaria, and Lavarone Luserna.
