La Valle borders with other Dolomite valleys from which it is separated by the Dolomite passes Gardena, Campolongo (that connects to Arabba and to the Valle del Cordevole), Valparola and Falzarego (that carry to Cortina d'Ampezzo). The main activities in Alta Badia are correlated with tourism, that represents, in fact, the most important economic resource of people living there.
