The forest of Sos Littos-Sas Tumbas, in the municipalities of Alà dei Sardi and Bitti, in the Nuorese, has belonged to the State forest since 1914. It is placed within fascinating scenery, rich in vegetation and watercourses, that make the visit and excursions within the area extremely pleasant. It has a surface area of 2155 hectares and varies in height from 110 m above sea level of Sos Nuratzolos to 774m at Punta Piatteri. The forest is of great interest for the presence of important plant formations and fauna species not found elsewhere. The vegetation is made up to a large extent by holm Oak woods, sometimes along with the presence of cork oaks and phillyrea. These woods are alternated with smaller areas of low brush of strawberry tree and arboreal heather, and also rockrose, lavender, phillyrea angustifolia, thorny broom, myrtle and lentisk. There are a variety of wildlife species that deserve attention. There is a magnificent population of fallow deer (Dama dama) living in this area, unfortunately under continuous threat of poaching. There is also an enclosure for the mouflon (Ovis ammon musimon) with the aim to reintroduce them to the area, along with the presence of the wild boar, the fox, the wild cat, the marten, the Sardinian hare, and the weasel. Moreover, the golden eagle that nests near Monte Tepilora, is also of great naturalistic interest. Other birds of prey that are possible to be sighted in the forest include the peregrine falcon, the sparrow hawk and the buzzard. along with the habitual presence of the Sardinian partridge and the wood pigeon. The area is also home to numerous watercourses like the Riu Orulamita that marks the western border of the area or the Riu S'Aragone, that crosses the whole territory in a west-east direction collecting the waters of the Riu Badd' 'e Deremita and of other smaller tributaries before flowing into the Riu Piscamu. These three watercourses, although affected by seasonal rainfall, still constitute watercourses throughout the whole year and they manage to support a fish fauna population.
