The Altopiano dei Sette Comuni (Seven cities highland, aka Asiago tableland) is a big range of sweet meadows and woods that borders, to the South, the Valsugana (Brenta river valley).
Its N border is made by a long ridge that to the N has high rocky and very wild walls (1500m high), to the S slope down gently, at the beginning with wild stony walleys and ribs, then with a big band of meadows and, after the main road (from Vezzena to Asiago) ends to the S with big wooded ribs.

The high parts of these slopes are crossed by a big net of military (1st WWW) unpaved roads) Kaiser Karl Strasse perfect for Mountain Bike and for cultural/panoramic hikes, some of this roads are open to private trafic so that you can save many hours walking to approach the summital ridge.

The main accesses (by the car) to the high plains are:

Malga Larici (12 km from Passo Vezzena + 6 km from the road Vezzena-Asiago) - for Cima Portule range

Malga Galmarara (from Camporovere toward Trento for 4 km then on the right for 7 km) - Cima Dodici range
