We stayed in the area for a week and really loved it. Nice green mountains, a surprising waterfall, trekking in mountains between Italy and Slovenia was really beautiful. We lived in the village Bagnoli della Rosandra and did several treks from this place. We liked short trek from Bagnoli to Bottazzi, where you can see a nice waterfall, and on... More

Val Rosandra, or Dolina Glinscice, as it's called in Slovene, is right on the Italian/Slovene border. A fantastic limestone gorge right on the edge of Trieste's industrial sprawl, thankfully just out of sight. For Brits, think Cheddar Gorge without the road and all that tourist tat. There is an easy, well maintained path from the ethnicly Slovene village of Boljunec... More

Even if the first part of the valley was destroyed by an unregulated tree cutting operation, the further inside the walking will go the better; suggested is "Locanda da Mario" at Draga S.Elia a must for every daypacker hiking in Val Rosandra. Either for a quick stop or for a full meal it is worth a visit.

Val Rosandra is where locals with a passion for hiking would go on a Sunday; it is however, in spite of a moderate height, full of tricky places, and dangerous spots. Every summer, unfortunately,...

Val Rosandra is the Mountain spot in Trieste; if you look for some free climbing, trekking or cycling this is the spot for you. Rock climbing started there in the '30 and hasn't stopped since. Nice peaceful place.

Sadly, many of the trees in the lower part of the valey have been cut down and people who knew the valley before cry outrage, but for those like me who are seeing it for the first time it is still a very beautiful place. Wild goats climb on the hill side, and the falls at the head of the... More
