Circular hike on the Montefontana

Starting at Tablà near Naturno we walk through meadows and woods at the lower Monte Tramontana mountain - an ideal walking tour in May to adapt ourselves to impending summer.

The circular walk starts at the village of Tablà (Tabland). Surrounded by apple orchards the village is located at 650 m a.s.l. at the entrance of the Schleider Valley. We follow the marker no. 4 which leads us to the Monte Tramontana (Nörderberg). The path leads uphill through the broadleaf forest. Like this we reach the clearing of the Niedermairhof farm at about 1,120 m a.s.l.

A rest at the farm inn is highly recommended, from the terrace a gorgeous view on the Val Venosta valley near Castelbello and Ciardes can be enjoyed. Afterwards again a steep section has to got over: We follow the marker no. 9 to the Kalthaus farmsteads. At an altitude of 1,250 m a.s.l. now we proceed along the path no. 13 into the Schleidertal valley where we take the marker no. 5 through the forest (or along the asphalt road) back to Tablà.

Especially in spring and autumn this circular hike is a hint.
