You start from a jewel to be discovered: the small hamlet of Masi di Cavalese with its small streets, the pretty villas and the stone huts and the view of the valley from the bottom up. Gradually the houses leave room for meadows and pastures until you get to Salanzada, a plateau cheered by the constant ringing of grazing cows. The dirt road that descends again to the valley through the woods comes out right in front of the splendid Cavalese waterfall, a jump of about 20 meters of fresh and impetuous waters, surrounded by lush nature. The jumps and splashes of its wild waters make the air sparkling and invigorating.
Do not miss the new steel walkway that allows you to approach the waterfall from above and enjoy its most suggestive side. You can only agree with us: it's a real Wonder!
