Alpine landscapes and Mediterranean atmospheres fused into a 40 km route with a 1600 m drop.
The beauty and the variety of the scenery are well worth the effort: the blue waters of Lake Ledro, Val Concei, a patchwork of fields and meadows surrounded by mountains and woods, the verdant pastures of Trat, the descent overlooking Lake Garda, Riva and its alleys leading down to the port, the breathtaking views from the Ponale path and the ascent across Valle di Ledro and its villages…
Bocca di Trat and the Ponale path were important strategic locations for the Austrian Army during the First World War and were thus intensely fortified and entrenched.
A few minutes from Bocca Trat is Rifugio Pernici, a mountain hut and a former Austrian barracks, where it is possible to stay the night and take refreshment during the opening period.
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.
