Then, on the top you will find a breathtaking scenario. You are staying on the top of this surreal giants who decline hundreds of meters downhill and offer a beautiful panorama Val di Non. Here you can recharge your soul with the energy of this place. In the middle of a Zen garden-like vegetation you feel immediately deep relaxation.
