From Curon, the valley opens out towards the east to the wild Vallelunga Valley. It is not only one of the most pristine valleys in the entire Alpine range, but also a center for winter sports.

The valley is characterized by its unspoiled Alpine farm landscape and is dotted with small settlements and isolated farms. At the bottom of this valley there are meadows and pastures with a stunning view of the Ötztal Alps and their glaciers. From the cross-country ski center at Melago, you can reach the top of the majestic Weißkugel mountain (at an altitude of 3,739 meters) or the equally impressive Weißsee peak, at 3,526 meters.
