Every year, a group of thrill seekers will gather for an event called the ‘International Highline Meeting’. This year, it was held at Monte Piana, located in north-eastern Italy.
During the meet, attendees would fix hammocks onto tightropes and camp out as they dangle precariously over the Italian Alps.
Definitely not for the faint of heart, it offers a stunning view of the mountains and gives individuals a once in a life time opportunity to be one with nature and its elements.
Monte Piana is one of the most beautiful site to visit in the Dolomites, with its special shape and position that offers a spectacular 360 degrees view towards the most famous mountains around Auronzo di Cadore, Cortina d’Ampezzo and “Sextner Dolomiten” – Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Paterno, Cadini di Misurina, Sorapiss, Cristallo, Croda Rossa ecc. – and over the Lake of Misurina at its feet. Monte Piana is also a special site of memory and history of the tragic events of last century: the World War fought on the Dolomites.
