Trekking in Punta La Marmora
Exploring the Gennargentu Massif
A suggestive route that, starting from lake flumendosa and going up the Gennargentu mountain massif, leads us to the roof of the island: Punta La Marmora (1,834 m above sea level).
The road to the highest peak of Sardinia will reveal green woods, garighe and the mysterious nuragic village of Molathò (Ruinas), with the remains of its 120 huts and a central nuraghe still in good condition and can be visited inside. Mouflons, herds of horses (once domestic and now feral) and the golden eagle will be our fellow hikers.
