Acereto is the birthplace and the home of the extreme alpinist Hans Kammerlander.
Already at the age of eight, Hans Kammerlander scaled the summit of the Picco di Palù (3,095 m) for the first time. This is how his mountaineering career started. Meanwhile the list of successfully scaled peaks has become particularly long, including 13 eight-thousanders in the Himalaya and Karakorum as well as the ski descend from the Nanga Parbat.
Acereto is located at 1,400 m asl, at the northern slopes of the valley. If the weather is fine, you can enjoy a great view on the mountains of the Valle Aurina, to the Plan de Corones and the Dolomites.
Acereto is also a popular area for flying, as there are good wind conditions. A paradise for deltaflying and paragliding.
By the way: if you hear the term „Fochina“ in the local dialect, it means „Acereto“.
