Nonsberg Group

Most of the Nonsberg Group, or Val di Non Alps, belongs to the Trentino, but Mt. Mendola located above Caldaro and Appiano borders on South Tyrol.

The Nonsberg Group is part of the southern Limestone Alps, the Mendola Ridge makes up most of the mountain group. In the north, the Nonsberg Group is delimitated by the Prissiano Forest at the Passo delle Palade mountain pass, in the east by the Valle dell’Adige valley and in the west by the Val di Non valley in the Trentino.

The Val di Non, located in the valleys and on the slopes of the Nonsberg Group, is separated into the Alta Val di Non (South Tyrol) and the Val di Non in Trentino. Localities like Proves, Lauregno, Senale-San Felice, Fondo and Cles are characterised by a very special atmosphere. The mountain ranges which surround the popular Mt. Penegal are the Fiemme Mountains in the east, the Sarentino Alps in the north-east, and the Brenta Group and the Ortles Alps in the west.

The Nonsberg Group is a well-known biking and hiking area. The three most popular mountains - all of them in South Tyrol - are Mt. Penegal (1,737 m a.s.l.), Mt. Macaion (1,866 m a.s.l.) and Mt. Roen (2,116 m a.s.l.). The 1,363 m high Passo Mendola mountain pass is the connection of the provinces of South Tyrol and Trentino - both in summer and winter this mountain attracts people from all over. It can also be reached by the Mendola Funicular from Caldaro.
