If you look at this Cable car from below, you might think that it only goes a short way up to the first mountain. However, this cable car goes much further than that and is really worth the trip. Once you arrive at the top you see a beautiful plateau of Dolomite Mountains laid out before you, and you can travel in virtually any direction to reach a mountain top, restaurant, or lake. We chose to hire electric bikes and within 15 minutes we were at the panorama restaurant for the first Aperol of the day. A thoroughly recommended trip.

Not a terribly strenuous walk - after you depart from the cable car station - but gorgeous vistas no matter where you turn. There are some rather steep drops to peer into, but there is cautionary fencing in those areas, and one can always walk a bit of a distance away for a less dramatic experience. Pretty alpine meadows, easy to follow trails, places to stop for drink/food. Not a bad way at all to spend a nice autumn afternoon.

We bought a 7 day pass( very economical) on the cable car and enjoyed such fantastic walks and every moment we were treated to exceptional 360 degree views of the mountain ranges that surround this wonderful high alpine plateau. The are walks for all ages and abilities which are well signposted and informative. You cannot go wrong. We stayed in Castelrotto, at the Hotel Cavilling d oro, and travelled on the free bus to the cable car each day. They run every 10 mins.

South Tyrol is an Autonomous Region in Northern Italy. She was divided from Tyrol (Austria) into 2 parts - North Tyrol (Austria) and South Tyrol (Italy). For more info, read South Tyrol Wikipedia. It took me almost 10 years to understand and still learning !!!
Their main languages are German, Italian and in some places Ladin and they have their own dialects. So if you are looking out for information, the names come in 2 to 3 languages. For example,
Province name Bolzano (Italian) / Bozen (German)
Commune (like main town) Castelrotto (Italian) / Kastelruth (German)
Village - Siusi (Italian) / Seis (German)
Fraction (sub Village) - S Vigilio (Italian) / St Vigil (German)
Some areas with Ladin-speaking, than the Ladin names will be added.
English is very limited here but they are improving, at least now there are signs and infos in English

For city people or anyone who needs a break from their busy schedules, this is the place for R & R (Rest & Recuperate)! An environmental-friendly place, fresh air, quiet, walking, meditating, body cleansing (lungs, hearts, eyes, etc), day-dreaming and/or do-nothing! A couple of weeks will be good to travel around.. Rent a car, drive through some mountains' passes to Switzerland or Austria or Germany or anywhere. For those who prefer challenges, hiking, skiing, roller-skiing, etc are also available here. Local food and wine are good, if you know where to go.

For Asian travellers, it's a long way to reach here but is worth it !

We stayed in Castelrotto four years ago and the Dolomites were calling us back again!!! So we flew from Prague to Cinque Terre, and then on to Bolzano and Castelrotto. We right away wanted to spend the day at Alpe di Suisi, and what a glorious day it was!!! It is truly one of the most spectacular places in the world as far as we are concerned. The gondola’s up to the top are large, clean, and smooth as can be. You get off and you feel like you are on top of the world with unending beauty surrounding you!!! The spring flowers were in full bloom and beautiful in yellows, blues, pinks. and white. Also enjoyed the small rock formations that people have placed/added to, we did our part as well. Not sure of the spelling but we call them In-Nuck-Sook’s. We will always carry in our hearts and minds the beauty of the Dolomites and wonderful walking/hiking trails that we so thoroughly enjoyed.
