In the middle of Val d’Ega, there is the village of Ega with its component localities of Ponte Nova and Novale.
In a forested area, in the east of the Nova Ponente high plateau and at the foot of the so-called “Latemar puppets”, there is the village of Ega, located in the homonymous valley. Belonging to the municipality of Nova Ponente, it has got some 900 inhabitants and is located at 1,120 m asl.
Especially the winter season has got much to offer: the ski centre Latermar-Obereggen is located only 3 km away and offers about 46 km and modern lift facilities. In winter months free shuttle services connect the village with the state-of-the-art lift facilities, several times a day. Cross-country skiers can look forward to 100 km of ski trails in the surroundings of Nove Ponente, Monte San Pietro, Passo Lavazé, Tesero and Passo Pellegrino.
In summer, however, Ega is the ideal starting point for numerous hikes and mountain bike tours in the surroundings. Worth seeing is also the S. Nicolò parish church. This patron saint has been chosen on purpose, as he was worshiped by the miners of Ega as helper if water is threatening. This saint is considered to have protected the village from wild waters.
Our tip: enjoy the fabulous natural landscape and listen to the sound of the forest, such as bird’s twittering or woodpeckers hammering.
