Mount Roen

The 2,116 m high Monte Roen, which towers high above the village of Termeno, represents the highest peak of the Mendola Ridge.

The 2,116 m high Mt. Roen, which is almost 800 metres higher as the neighbouring Passo della Mendola mountain pass, rises high above Termeno (Tramin) along the South Tyrolean Wine Road. A beautiful panorama hike takes you from the Passo della Mendola to the summit of Mt. Roen: it proceeds on the path no. 521 towards south to the Malga di Romeno mountain hut (1,773 m a.s.l.), an area which already belongs to the Trentino. Afterwards, the trail leads in 2.5 - 3 hours through mountain pine forests and across steep meadows to the top of Mt. Roen.

The Monte Roen mountain offers a stunning view on the entire Oltradige area and the surrounding peaks, including the Dolomites, the Brenta Dolomites and the Ortles Alps with its “King Ortles”. Towards east, the slopes fall down sharply to the Bassa Atesina area in South Tyrol, whereas in the west they descend more gently into the Val di Non valley in the Trentino. The meadows here present themselves especially in early summer with a myriad of mountain flowers, including the Alpine clematis and the gentian.

A more demanding trail, however, takes you from the Passo della Mendola to the Rif. Oltradige al Roen mountain hut and proceeds afterwards to the top of Mt. Roen. The path no. 10 leads to the mountain hut, and continues as “Via ferrata Cima Roèn”, a fixed-rope route. Those who don’t want to miss the breathtaking view also in winter, can enjoy a snowshoe hike to Mt. Roen.
