Walk in the nature to appreciate the variety of the cembrane vegetation and to discover an ancient system to cath the birds, a labyrinth vegetable of great charm and ingenious that it's called "Roccolo del Sauch".

Author’s recommendation

The stop is a must inside the Roccolo del Sauch to admire its articulated plant structure and relax on the grass in front. The Malga of Sauch shelter is perfect for refreshing yourself while eating trational Trentino dishes.

From Trento bus station, take line B102 towards Cavalese (Trento - Cembra - Capriana - Cavalese) and get off at Cembra. There are no public transport that connect the Holy Lake so the place of departure must be reached by own means of transport or on foot.
