The Salto (Salten) is the southern part of Mt. Monzoccolo and famous for its wide larch meadows.

Together with the Renon High Plateau and the Monte Regolo, Mt. Monzoccolo is among the most important mountain ranges around Bolzano. Millions of years ago it was a volcanic area. Today, in the south of the Monzoccolo, which stretches from Avelengo via the villages of Verano, Meltina and San Genesio at an average altitude of 1,100 and 1,500 m a.s.l., the Salto high plateau - "Salten" in German, "Salto" in Italian - is located. Its highest point is the 1,468 m high Tschaufenhöhe pass.

This hiking and excursion destination is very popular for its gorgeous wide larch meadows, in autumn a true spectacle of colours. Already in the 13th century, the Salto was mentioned (Lat. "saltus" = forest), the alpine meadows have always been used for cow and horse grazing. The famous Haflinger horses can be seen here.

Also the Long distance hiking trail E5 and the yellow route of the Via Alpina proceed across this high plateau, always accompanied by fantastic panoramic views. Moreover, in this cultural landscape the Guggnweg Theme Trail and the Legends Trail can be found - several stations tell different sagas and are decorated with crafted figures done by the local children. A real attraction especially for the young ones!
