More than 250 million years ago, the current Alpine region was much more southern and belonged to the Pangea continent. Coral reefs, colorful fish and crustaceans, as well as deep blue water and white beaches were in this area. Hard to believe that the Sextener Dolomites have their origin here.
But with the presence of mollusks, corals, algae and fish, much lime was produced, and volcanism mixed basalt magmas that led to the dying of animals and organisms. The plate tectonics raised the bottom of the sea, the water of the primeval sea went back and the Dolomites came to light. Once the ice age was over, the Dolomites changed again and have always been a mountain in constant change.
A special feature of the Sesto Dolomites, Italian Dolomiti di Sesto, is the mineralogical composition of the rock. Calcium carbonate and magnesium are responsible for the intense sunset and release nuances of shining orange to glowing red and intense violet. This evening light, also called Enrosadira, is an incomparable natural spectacle, especially in the Sexten Dolomites.
The Sesto Dolomites, also known as Sextener Dolomites, are the north-easternmost part of the Dolomites and have always been a popular holiday and research destination in South Tyrol. Celebrities such as the German painter Albrecht Dürer and the artist Wolfgang von Goethe were lovers of these unique rock formations and encountered the Dolomites during their travels. But many scientists also deal with the Dolomites. Déodat de Dolomieu, the namesake of the Dolomites, carried out the first mineralogical-chemical analysis of dolomite rock.
In the 19th century, the imposing mountain peaks, craggy cliffs and steep crenellations became a paradise for hikers and climbers. Alpinism in the Sexten Dolomites was born.
The year 2009 has also made history. Some Dolomite mountains, including parts of the Sesto Dolomites, have been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and are world famous.
Famous mountains in the Sesto Dolomites are the Dreischusterspitze 3.152 m, the Drei Zinnen 2.999 m, the Paternkofel, the summits of the Sextener Sonnenuhr – sundial – the biggest natural sundial in the world!! (Peak 9, Peak 10 or Croda Rossa, Peak 11 3.092 m, Peak 12 3.094 m and Peak 1), the Cadinigroup and the Haunold.
Reinhold Messner about the Dolomites: "Although they are not the highest mountains in the world, they are the most beautiful."
