Dromaè is among the most beautiful spots in Valle di Ledro, particularly late in the Spring. Green meadows, unparalleled views over the Lake, wild flowers and historical traces make for a spectacular walk.
Pink peonies and white daffodils fill up the slopes of Dromaè from May to early June. Peonies grow along the botanical path, whereas daffodils are to be found in the meadows above the casinei, little huts used by the people of Mezzolago during the summer. Besides these flowers, there are also mountain orchids which are more of a challenge to spot.
The belvedere in Dromaè is an exceptional viewpoint over Valle di Ledro. On a clear day, the eye can roam from the Adamello group to Lake Garda, from Tremalzo to Monte Corno. The trenches and tunnels found along the way date back to the First World War, when Valle di Ledro was at the front between Austria-Hungary and the Kingdom of Italy.

You need to wear the right clothing and take the proper gear when you go hiking in the mountains. Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.
What should you take when you go on a hike?
Your rucksack (for a day trip a 25/30L capacity should do) should contain:
Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains. When wet, a grassy slope, rocky slab or steep trail can be dangerous unless you are wearing the proper footwear.
And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views you come across all over Garda Trentino. And if you like, you can share your memories with us at #GardaTrentino.
