When you come through the narrow pass of Tel into the Venosta Valley, you can immediately see the high vertical distances of the surrounding mountains. The journey up by car is winding and tedious. For this reason, cableway installations such as funiculars, mountain railways and chairlifts are a common feature in the Venosta Valley. From Castelbello-Ciardes there are a number of funiculars which bring you to the plateaus of the Monte Tramontana and Monte Sole Mountain within minutes.
