Mountain tour to Mt Piz de Levico

The Cima Vezzena Peak or Mt Piz di Levico, as it is also called, is a 1,908 m high mountain, easy to climb and with an amazing panoramic view on the Valsugana valley.

Our starting point is the Passo Vezzena (1,402 m), located at the road from Lavarone and Lusern to Asiago. At the parking space we follow the markers “Forte Verle” and “Cima Vezzena”. After about 1 km we leave the asphalt road and follow the path which runs next to it because this path leads through awesome flower meadows and the woods. Past the Austrian Fort “Busa Verle” the path leads steeply and gruffly uphill. In the shady forest we climb step by step until our path results in the old military road, which leads to the mountain top.

The summit cross already in sight we climb the last part. Shortly before we reach the top it becomes visible that the highest point of the mountain is not a rock but the remains of the former fortress “Verle” which was destroyed at the beginning of the First Worldwar. The colour of the cement is exactly the same as the one of the rocks. It is not a perfect day for good visibility but nevertheless we enjoy the view on the valley and the surrounding mountains, from the Brenta Dolomites to the Lagorai mountain group, from the peaks of the Vigolana and Marzola to the Manderiolo and Ortigara, from the Monte Verena and Pasubio until the Monte Baldo.

For our way back we choose the old military road, indeed this route is 1 km longer as the one we took to climb up but it is more comfortable and easier to walk. Like this we reach again the blooming Alpine meadows and take a well-deserved rest at the guesthouse on the Passo Vezzena, where our car is parked.
