– It is recommended to check the website and social media profiles of the malga for updated activities and services.
Malga Valmaron – I Lotto is the first of a series of malgas with pastures that occupy the area from which they take their name. Part of its pastures, some of which are located on steep slopes, overlooks Valsugana, through the Val di Tana.
Not far from the malga is the peak of Monte Lisser, where the Italian army fort of the same name can be visited. Entirely restored, it is very interesting from an architectural point of view for being constructed with very white skilfully squared limestone blocks.
Despite the damage caused in 2018 by the strong winds of the Vaia Storm, vast spruce woods still characterize the Nordic type landscape, providing spectacular views.
Starting from here, in just a few kilometers you can reach numerous malgas in Valmaron and the Piana di Marcesina on biking and walking trails. From the beginning of autumn, the area is popular with mushroomers.
From the center of Enego, proceed towards Foza for about 6 km as far as Bivio Dori. Turn right and go uphill for 5.6 km until you reach Baita Valmaron. From there, proceed on the left for about 700 m until you reach the malga.
Do you want to have the best experience in the malga?
When you arrive at the malga, you’re entering the “home” of the malga operator population and their livestock: It’s a welcoming environment, rich with fascination, everything is to be discovered but also respected. Here are our recommendations for you!
The malga operator lifestyle is characterized by hardwork that starts before dawn and continues even after sundown. For example…Did you know that there two times set apart for milking? One before breakfast and another in the late afternoon.
Also, feel free to ask information but avoid going into work areas inaccessible to the public and be discrete: speaking too loudly may scare the livestock and disturb whomever is enjoying the peace of the mountain.
They are passive and docile animals but their size could put you in uncomfortable situations…or somewhat inappropriate behaviors could frighten them and provoke dangerous and unusual reactions.
It’s enough to maintain an adequate distance, avoid taking pictures from too close up, touching them, bothering them or looking them directly in the eye.
If you are with your dog, remember to keep it on a leash and under control.
When you find yourself near some cows, it’s better to avoid sudden movements, walk slowly and without getting anxious. And, if they were to get too close, distance yourself calmly and without turning your back to them!
They watch over the livestock and often offer a warm welcome to guests. Don’t worry: They are not dangerous. Treat them with respect and you will become good friends. If you are on a bike, slow down to avoid mean falls caused by demonstrations of affection a little too… overwhelming!
Those who follow the itineraries and visit the malgas know well how wonderful nature is, with its breathtaking landscapes. This is the reason why it is important not to pollute it with waste that can be taken home and properly recycled or disposed of.
The herdsmen of the plateau and the animals that live there are very fond of tourists who enjoy the wonderful days with walks, fresh air and relaxation… respecting the woods and pastures!!
