The Highest Park in Europe

The Park covers an area of 6,511 hectares, between the 900 - 4,559m above sea-level, and it is thus the highest Park in Europe. Its territory includes the upper portions of the bedheads of the river Sesia and of the stream Sermenza, both made of a number of confluent gorges. Its western and north-western boundaries run along the watershed separating the Valsesia from the Gressoney valley, from the Swiss territory, and from the Valle Anzasca. In the West, the border coincides with the Alpine ridge of the Monte Rosa massif, reaching the 4,559m of Punta Gnifetti.
