Passo Tremalzo (Tremalzo Pass) is an Alpine pass located between Mount Tremalzo (1974m) to the east and Cima del Dil (1807m) to the west. It is popular with bikers and hikers, travelling from all over Europe for the panoramic views that can be admired from the two peaks, over the Garda and Ledro lakes.
During the First World War, Passo Tremalzo was an important junction for war activities on the frontlines towards the Ledro Valley. The Italian Army built a road that connected the pass to Tremosine, passing through the Bondo Valley and Passo Nota. This ingenious and intrepid project is still one of the main ways to connect this area to Tremosine and beyond.
The unique beauty of the landscapes, the dense network of trails and the different roads reaching the pass, make Tremalzo and surrounds a real paradise for cyclists and hiking enthusiasts.
Among the different excursions to tackle on two wheels, one of the best known is the one that starts from Molina di Ledro and climbs to the Garda mountain hut on Passo Tremalzo, then descends across Val Marsa to the town of Prè, a loop-shaped ride with stunning views over Lake Garda.
If you prefer hiking on foot, the most popular trail is the one that leads to the top of Mount Tremalzo, a clearly visible trail climbing through the woods for about 45 minutes. Once you reach the top at 1953 meters, you can admire a spectacular view of all the surrounding mountains.
