This tour represents one of the most stimulating agonistic mtb routes of the Alpe Cimbra. It is run by "champions" and requires trained legs!

The word “Oltresommo” on the Alpe Cimbra indicates the area beyond the pass “Passo Sommo” between the villages San Sebastiano and Nosellari. It starts from Carbonare, goes up to the Mount Rust, down to the Lake Lavarone, a gem of Trentino, runs through the trenches of the First World War in Nosellari. What a stirring experience!

Difficult and hard is the climb to Forte Cherle, relaxing is the forest of the Val Fredda and finally is funny the beautiful return to the starting point.

Everyone can travel along this route, just rent an E-MTB!

From the square of Carbonare (1070 m) descend into the large meadow area of the Longhenbisen, then reach the pastures of the alpine hut Elbele; from here continue towards the evocative Austrian Command near the hamlet Virti, then cut uphill the north-west slope of Mount Rust and pedal down to the Lake Lavarone. Quickly descend to Nosellari and then back again to Carbonare.

Giro molto XC. Ci vorrebbe qualche discesa un pochino più tecnica, la discesa finale di 10km è tutta su carrareccia. Peccato
