Up in the mountains only 20 km. away from Trento the "Mocheni
valley" is known because it is a German speaking
island. It remains in your heart because of its wonderful
view of nature colors succession.
Its wild and charming environment can be known following
the paths among meadows and woods, near houses and farms.
You can reach alpine summer pastures and mountain huts
during relaxing walks or you can feel the adventure on
more difficoult routes, which look up to the high peaks
of the proud "Lagorai" mountain group.
The Mocheni valley still keeps its own folk- and gastronomic
traditions. They are a picture of the culture and customs
of a population, which has been keeping its own identity
throught the time not only with local traditional events
(like "the song of the star" in the Christmas
time and "Bèce" performance on the last
day of carnival), but also with the love for the nature
and the defence of its historic and cultural wealth.
The Mocheni valley won't disappoint your expectations.
Today it still looks like yesterday, when the austrian
author Robert Musil named it "the enchanted valley".
