A popular starting point for hikes in the Sciliar area is Umes, making part of the municipality of Fiè allo Sciliar.
Located at 930 m asl, at the Rio Sciliar riverbank, there is the mountain village of Umes with its 200 inhabitants. The mountain farms are located round the S. Martino church, centre of a the little village. The succursal church of the Maria Assunta parish church was constructed in the 17th century.
Like in all further villages at the foot of the Sciliar, also in this village nature is at the centre and it is ideal for those who love hiking. No matter if you choose the pond of Fiè, the Tuffalm pasture, Hofer Alpl or the Rifugio Bolzano at the top of the Sciliar, there is something for every taste.
