Irrigation Channel Paths of Castelbello-Ciardes

Hiking Along the Irrigation Channel Paths in Lower Venosta Valley

Waalwege is the local name for the trails which run without any significant incline along the small mountain irrigation channels on Monte Sole or Monte Tramontana mountains. The narrow channels in Venosta Valley were dug many centuries ago in order to ensure the irrigation of the fields in this arid valley.

Today, the paths are popularhiking trails. In Venosta Valley they are accessible year-round and offer insight into the diverse flora and fauna of this unique landscape, as well as spectacular views of the surrounding valley and the mountains.

Some of the most beautiful irrigation channel paths of the entire Venosta Valley are located around Castelbello-Ciardes: the Latschanderwaal, the waalweg to Juval Castle  and the 11km-long Schnalswaal – one of the longest paths in South Tyrol.
