Dromaè is among the most beautiful spots in Valle di Ledro, particularly late in the Spring. Green meadows, unparalleled views over the Lake, wild flowers and historical traces make for a spectacular walk.
Distance 12.1 km
Pink peonies and white daffodils fill up the slopes of Dromaè from May to early June. Peonies grow along the botanical path, whereas daffodils are to be found in the meadows above the casinei, little huts used by the people of Mezzolago during the summer. Besides these flowers, there are also mountain orchids which are more of a challenge to spot.
The belvedere in Dromaè is an exceptional viewpoint over Valle di Ledro. On a clear day, the eye can roam from the Adamello group to Lake Garda, from Tremalzo to Monte Corno. The trenches and tunnels found along the way date back to the First World War, when Valle di Ledro was at the front between Austria-Hungary and the Kingdom of Italy.
The Sentiero austroungarico starts from the belvedere and leads to the casinei di Dromaè. Along the path are several huts and trenches where the Austrian soldiers spent the war years. It is a nice alternative to the main road.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
Start from the church and walk uphill along the main road. Walk for a short stretch along the forestry road and then turn left onto the botanical path. The signposts along the path explain about the trees, flowers and plants to be found in Dromaè. At the end of the botanical path turn back onto the forestry road and walk up the belvedere. From there the road goes downhill for a short stretch and then up again to the casinei. Walk back to Mezzolago along the forestry road.
