Vinschgau – Italian Alps

Autumn in Vischgau, in italian Alps, on the border to Switzerland.

Clear division of different mountain vegetation zones is visible: from green, juicy valleys, throught autumny forests and burned out brown coloured grasses over the forest line. Above it remain majestic bare rocks and in the background snowy fields of the highest peaks (3500-4000 asl).

Nice retreat after a full day hike is offered in many picturesque villages at the foot of the mountains. Traditional architecture and delicious cuisine count definitely to the „best of”.
