Trekking through the silent forests and precious reserves of the Alta Val di Cembra and Monte Corno Park. Immerse yourself in an environment that is still intact and waiting to be discovered.
The path that we propose will lead you to the presence of something special, unusual. You will not encounter rock towers or untouched peaks, but something smaller and perhaps less flashy, but equally precious. You will always be surrounded by the forests that separate the Adige valley from the Val di Cembra, an area straddling two worlds already in Roman times, and you will meet witnesses of the past and present of this mountain. First of all: peat bogs, ancient lakes of glacial origin where peat has progressively reduced the surface of the water, creating an incredibly favourable environment for biodiversity. In addition, rocks, mills and border stones that narrate forgotten events. At the end of the day, you will find the heat of the mountain retreat or the malga: a plate of hot soup and a glass of wine will help to cheerfully remember what happened today and to dream of tomorrow's stage.
The trek is part of a larger circuit of 3 days in duration (see stages 1 and 3).
Itinerary designed and implemented by Sviluppo Turistico Grumes in collaboration with the Network of Reserves Valle di Cembra - Avisio, the Natural Park of Monte Corno, the subjects of tourism promotion and numerous private operators.
The peat bogs that we meet along the way date back to about 12,000 years ago, when the basins dug during the last glaciation turned into ponds that began to swamp and tarnish to create these environments. Peat bogs are very important and protected environments both for their rarity at the Alpine level and for their richness in biodiversity.
