MONTE ROEN 2116 m
The Monarch of Val di Non
To discover new horizons at Passo Mendola, simply climb up all the Val di Non to reach the throughway at 1363 m which divides Monte Penegal from Monte Roen. Your final destination is Roen, which stands at 2116 m and towers over the eastern side of the valley, providing a spectacular view!
Over the past few years, winter excursions have become very popular - in part thanks to snowshoes - and a proliferation of signposted itineraries can be seen in many of Trentino's tourist areas. The signs to Roen are clearly marked in the shape of a "Snowshoe" and the itinerary that will take you south to Roen is well groomed.
Travelling amid the silence of age-old forests and candid clearings, you will soon reach Malga Romeno, which is open on Saturdays and Sundays. Enjoy this idyllic spot as you make your way up slowly, surrounded by a landscape that will continue to exceed your expectations on each and every step of the way. Once you leave the vegetation behind, the route is clear and climbs up towards the peak of this white panettone. On the right, you will see the Val di Non below you, where a myriad of fruit orchards and multitude of towns endow the landscape with a fairytale-like aura. On the left instead, the easy-going character of the Roen changes, with a 2000 m drop to the bottom of Val d'Adige that will send a shiver down your spine if you get too close!
Roen's peak can be reached in 2 and a half hours. The way down is easy and safe. However, before you turn around, stop and enjoy the incredible views and landscapes here. They truly deserve their great fame. From the Lagorai to Maddalene, from Cevedale to the Dolomites, marvel at this unique world of infinite horizons!
