The main mountains of Valsugana are the one of the Lagorai mountain chain, which divide the valley from Fiemme valley. Made of porphyry stones, these mountains boast a wild landscape rich of alpine lakes. Perfect for hikes and more-days trekking such as the High Path of Granite and the Eastern Trentino Horse path. The majestic Cima D’Asta group closes the chain with the highest peaks, just perfect for hiking.
Between the most famous valleys of the Valsugana you can find: Mocheni valley, Sella valley, Calamento valley and Vanoi valley.
Valle dei Mocheni, called “the enchanted valley”, is located a few kilometers from Trento and from the lakes of Levico and Caldonazzo and is characterized by an evocative and wild natural environment full of meadows, woods and farms. There are numerous walks that lead to the mountain huts and refuges or more challenging hikes that allow you to reach the famous Lake Erdemolo at 2,005m. above sea level and the peaks of the Lagorai mountain chain.
Even if the small “Terre Tesine” don’t take up even one thousandth of the Alpine Surface, they comprise all the distinguishing elements of the widest European ecosystem. Nature, culture, history, traditions and folklore are in fact, in a considerable and representative way to form extraordinary uniqueness and typicalness, in a well-balanced symbiosis between natural and anthropological environment.
To Mother Nature are attributable one hundred peaks topographically recognized, which are trimmed, at the foot and inside the numerous minor valleys, with vast alpine meadow-lands and twenty million rare trees. Linked with imposing mountains, there are two dozen streams, thirty glacial tarns, biotopes and foamy waterfalls alternated by secret spaces, shadowy torrential gorges and by spectacular hypogeal formations.
To Man’s work are ascribable the little village of Bieno, four old town centers, a dozen hamlets, nearly seven hundreds mountain huts and about fifty ancient mountain pastures and also ruins of the great War. Excursions are suitable for everyone, modern high-altitude refuges, comfortable tourist resorts and equipment for the spare time.
