Image gallery: Monte Baldo Group
The Monte Baldo group is a more than 2000 metre high and 37 km long mountain chain which is situated between the Adige river and the east bank of Lake Garda. It is characterised by its rich vegetation - including several botanical rarities. The reason for this phenomenon is that the mountain raised above the ice during the entire ice age. Its richness in vegetation brought Monte Baldo the epithet "Hortus Italiae", the garden of Italy. In 1972, on the slopes of this mountain, the nature park Bes Corna was established.
The Monte Baldo group includes the following peaks: Monte Baldo Altissimo di Nago, Cima del Longino, Cima delle Pozzette, Cima Valdritta and Punto Telegrafo.
Moreover Monte Baldo is perfect for leisure time activities and is an outdoor gym for bikers, paragliders and hikers. The most beautiful terrace of Lake Garda, this is how the Monte Baldo is also called, offers a splendid view on the Lombardian Alps, the Venetian Alps as well as the Dolomites and the Padan Plain.
