Mount Corrasi is part of the Massive of Supramonte, which is the pulsating heart of the Barbagias. Corrasi’s peak is the highest point of this mountainous formation which extends for 350 kilometres, surrounded by Oliena, Dorgali, Baunei, Urzulei and Orgosolo.
What brings here hikers worldwide is certainly not the high altitude, as Sardinian peaks have been eroded by time and have now much lower heights than before. What is unique about the Supramonte and Corrasi is their pristine nature, their one-of-a-kind landscapes, their rare signs of human presence, like the characteristic pinnetos. These round huts made of stone with a wooden roof were still used not so long ago by shepherds during their cattle drive and are surprisingly similar to the old Nuragic cabins of 3600 years ago.
The charm of these places lies in their magical ability to bring the wanderer into a pure world that is wild and unconquerable, a location outside of time which no man has ever managed to tame throughout time.
