Dromaé is certainly a place that lies close to the heart of all who live and visit Valle di Ledro. The slightly higher effort required by this additional route compared to the main 729. tour is totally rewarded by its beauty!

The Coste di Salò forest road offers countless views of Lake Ledro, but a photo stop at the Belvedere di Dromaé is truly not to be missed. Here Games of Cubes directs the lens towards Lake Ledro and Tremalzo! Just below the viewpoint, some First World War trenches can be seen. These also mark the beginning of the Sentiero austroungarico, a path that leads along the front of the Great War to the summit of Cima d'Oro. The meadows and ridges of the Senter de le greste tower above the Malga Dromaé, the tour destination, and capture the eye.

This tour is best done in May: at the beginning of the month, the peonies bathe the forests in bright pink, while towards June it is the turn of the wild daffodils. At this time, the meadows near the casinei (small huts formerly used as barns) turn white.

Safety guidelines

ITRS - International Trail Rating System

The ITRS is an objective way to assess trails and routes from a biker’s perspective, evaluating four aspects:

  • Technical Difficulty: riding skill level needed
  • Endurance: combined effect of length, uphill and downhill
  • Wilderness: amount of planning required based on mobile phone reception, rescue options, water supply and wildlife
  • Exposure: consequences of a fall

Discover more about the ITRS system and check the classification of this tour in the photo gallery.

Directions

The route is a variant of the 729. Lake Ledro - Tour departing from the village of Alla Valle. Alternatively, we can take the route from Mezzolago starting from the church and following first Via San Michele and then Via Dromaé.

From Alla Valle we take the Coste di Salò forest road. We keep on the forest road for about 5 km and reach the panoramic viewpoint of Dromaé, where the road begins to descend towards the casinei, characteristic barns with a view of Lake Ledro. After 200 m the road begins to climb again to the locality Fienili di Dromaé. At the crossroads, we take the forest road on the left that leads to Malga Dromaé. We return along the same route. 

public transportation

Valle di Ledro is connected to Riva del Garda by the intercity bus line 214 (Riva-Valle di Ledro-Storo).
