From the nuraghic huts of Tiscali to the Cuili of Su Praicarzu.

the Supramonte of Oliena and Dorgali.

The hike is of low / medium difficulty, suitable for those who want to get closer to hiking. Through the excursion we will observe two living testimonies of Supramonte, a recent one, the Cuili, active until the years 50/60, a great examples of how men living in that area were able to adapt to difficult conditions; the other, more famous and certainly much more remote, it is charming the sinkhole of Tiscali.

The interest of the sinkhole Tiscali,  in addition to the remains of the huts (which are very few), regards its vegetation,  with trees and shrubs grown excessively as a result of a particular condition microclimate. Of course, the surrounding areas are the corollary

of both sites, with all the splendor of the limestone landscape and their beautiful vegetation (ilex trees and junipers, Mediterranean scrub and other various shrubs).

Estimated time for the excursion: 5-6 hours if we go to Su Praicargiu, 3 or 4 hours (without lunch break and visit to the site) if we visit only Tiscali. Depending of the conditions of the group the excursion can be shortened or extended.
