GET TO KNOW THE MOUNTAINS OF ALTOPIANO DEL SOLE
The Altopiano del Sole, besides undoubtedly being the ideal place for your holiday, is a great natural stage on which to admire and contemplate the beauty and majesty of the mountain complexes that embrace and cradle this territory. Mountains, parks and nature reserves characterise the Altopiano del Sole territory and make it an unparalleled destination, all waiting to be discovered.
Getting to know a place means familiarising oneself with the magical and unique places that characterise the Altopiano and frame it.
Unspoilt mountains, forests, rock faces and valleys that are among the most beautiful in Lombardy. This is the extraordinary picture of the Altopiano del Sole. In this territory, nature is still the mistress of the house. An oasis where verdant valleys abound, where the colours of the spruce, the yellow of the Goldilocks buttercup and the blue of the gentians stand out.
A HERITAGE WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED
A paradise for nature lovers and botany enthusiasts, who will be able to appreciate and study blooms here that are precious for their rarity and nobility. So rich is the nature of the Altopiano del Sole that ERSAF, – the Regional Agency for Services to Agriculture and Forestry – plays an important role in Borno for the enhancement of the forest heritage and the dissemination of knowledge of this inestimable wealth.
Inside the Nature Reserve “I Boschi del Giovetto” it is possible to discover the “Library of the Forest”. which is always open and located in a very small building in a charming and panoramic spot in the woods. An anthology of literature narrating the woods and those who inhabit them is preserved here. A small hidden gem in the mountains of the Altopiano del Sole.
Among the activities that we recommend and that really allow you to get to know the area’s mountain complexes is scanning the mountains using apps. These apps are in fact able to recognise mountains. How do they work? They make use of augmented reality and artificial intelligence to help the user recognise mountains and places visited. Just point your device’s camera at a mountain to find out its name and other useful information.
HAVE FUN NAMING MOUNTAINS
We recommend the PEAKVISOR app available for both Android and iOS. By clicking on the Google Play or App Store button, you can download the app completely free of charge.
The main purpose of this app is to enable the recognition of peaks and mountain ranges via the smartphone camera. This is possible thanks to the integration with an extensive online database that interfaces with the excellent recognition system.
