The Tibetan Bridge at Torri del Benaco

On August 9, 2019 was inaugurated the new Tibetan Bridge suspended over the Vanzana Valley, which connects the towns of Pai di Sopra with Crero.

Characteristics of the bridge
The bridge is 34 metres long, just over a metre wide, with a maximum height from the bottom of the valley of almost 45 metres. It is all made of steel, with non-slip grids and supported by steel cables. A maximum of fifteen people can climb the bridge at the same time. Even mountain bikes can only be pushed through by hand.

Utility
In addition to providing a breathtaking view, the bridge acts as a link between the paths Cai 38 and 39 and allows to walk the “senter de mes” – “middle path” – continuously from Malcesine to Garda. Up to now it has been necessary to go down to the lake or up to San Zeno di Montagna to continue the route.

How to get there from Pai di Sotto
A few steps from the hotel Menapace in a northerly direction, take the road marked by the sign “Località Nido Margherita”. Go uphill until you reach Via Manzoni where you continue to the right towards the north, for a few meters until you reach on the left the small “Via per la Casetta”. Go uphill and at the end of the pavement continue along the dirt path. The path is easy and marked by new signs.
