Hike on the Pian della Nana high plateau

A peaceful hike in one of the most beautiful corners of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, in the enchanting green Dolomite amphitheatre of the Val Nana valley

At the end of the long ascent on the "Montagna di Cles / Rifugio Peller" road, which is still completely unpaved for the last few kilometres (be careful!), we park the car at Lake Dorigat (1,869 m) and follow the gravel road, which is closed to traffic, towards the Malga Tassulla (no. 336). We climb around the summit cross of Mount Peller and soon the slope becomes gentler, leading us into the very green Val Nana valley, with a view on the Malga Tassulla (or Tasula). The mountain farm does not offer catering, but it is possible to buy its excellent products, including not only dairy products: a good idea for a snack on the way back.

After leaving the Malga Tassulla behind, we enter the wide amphitheatre of the Pian della Nana plateau, surrounded by the peaks of the northern Brenta Mountain Chain. The landscape that opens up before our eyes is breathtaking: our eyes get lost in the green of the grass, the yellow of the buttercups and the grey to red tones of the rocks. We continue slightly uphill to the 2,199 m high Nana Pass, our destination today, which separates the Val di Non from the Val di Sole. After a short break, we hike back on the same path.

Alternatively, you can extend the hike (about one hour) by crossing the Passo della Nana and taking a beautiful circular walk around Mount Peller, past Lago delle Salare and the Malga Clésera.
