The King of the Dolomites

The Sun sets over the King of the Dolomites Italy

Monte Antelao is the highest mountain or pinnacle in the eastern Dolomites (a section of the Alps) in north-eastern Italy. A single, mighty rock pyramid also known as the “King of the Dolomites”.

Antelao is an ultra-prominent peak, or ultra for short, because its summit has a topographic prominence of 1500 meters or more. It is also called a P1500.

This photo was taken during the sunset on the final evening of my trip at the Dolomites in Italy.
