Monte Casale offers the most scenic view over the valley. You can admire all the mountain peaks towering on the horizon: from the Fiemme & Fassa Dolomites to the Bondone, from the Ladrensi Alps to the Adamello Group, over to the Presanella and the Ortles, the Brenta range and the Paganella. Below them, Lake Molveno, Lake Toblino & S. Massenza, with Lake Cavedine, Lake Tenno, Lake Terlago and finally Lake Garda.

Itinerary: Comano Paese, Monte Casale Rifugio Don zio Pisono, Comano Paese.

Author’s recommendation

We suggest to organize an excursion to the top of Monte Casale during the spring and autumn when the colours of nature are brilliant.

Destination

Monte Casale

Turn-by-turn directions

From Comano start climbing along the SAT 411 until you reach Monte Casale. En route you will come to “Le Quadre” area. Here, the view stretches to the horizon revealing a unique spectacle that only nature can offer: stunning panoramas, rolling luscious fields, green pasture and the entire valley with its hamlets dotted around the vast plain. After walking for about 15 minutes through the grassy fields you will reach the top of Monte Casale. Here, you will find a sign with arrows pointing in different directions to easily spot each peak and mountain range. Further ahead, a big iron cross close to the sheer drop over the Lakes Valley. Those with not much training in their legs can drive up to the sign restricting vehicular entry, near the television aerials, and continue on foot. Those who, instead, wish to enjoy the panorama without any physical effort, can purchase a daily permit – from the Panoramica Hotel in Comano-  and reach the car park near the fields only 15 minutes from Capanna Don Zio.

Questo anno fatta due volte. La prima salendo da Comano, la seconda guadagnando un po quota e parcheggiando l auto alle antenne. Il panorama dal monte casale e' imperdibile, da fare assolutamente anche se un po faticosa.
