The Vallunga is the entrance to the Naturepark Puez - Odle. It lasts a few km and it's in the middle of woods and mountains. The valley has a flair of quiteness and calm and everybody can enjoy it during a walk in the valley.

Turn-by-turn directions

Walk on path no. 14 from the entrance to the Vallunga valley to S. Silvestro chapel. The walk slowly becomes steeper as you stroll through larch and mountain pine thickets. No worries, as you can rest on the many benches and tables places on the path: sit down, relax and revel in the unique view stretching out before you. The valley slowly becomes narrower as the vegetation predominantly turns to mountain pine groves. It then returns to its customary, wide expanse upon reaching the meadows. Continue walking until you reach rocky walls reaching to the sky. Return on the same path.
