Nature's myths path

General description

The sun, in the dialect "Sunn", is the all-determining force on the Vinschger Sonnenberg. It heats up the rocks and bathes the landscape in its golden light. Wonderful starting points alternate with curious, exciting and unexpected insights into the secrets of a sensitive balance of natural forces.

Route description

Start at the village square in Castelbello, pass by Castelbello Castle, go to the Latschander irrigation channel path and follow it until the junction for Laces. There is the access to the nature's myths path. The first section of the myths path takes you on path no. 8 towards Montetrumes. The path leads through Douglas firs, Austrian pines and locust trees before you reach the so-called "Luamer Tschött" pond and the cupstone after some 30 minutes. Soon afterwards, the path branches off to the right. It is first even before you descend to reach the Via Montetrumes street that you follow for about 300 m towards Castelbello. Turn right at the sign (path no. 8) and continue to the "Klumper" slab and the irrigation channel path above Castelbello from where you can return to Castelbello's village square.
