Who is visiting the city of Trieste should go to Val Rosandra. You can catch buses to go and to return. The path I met begins in Vedeta di San Lorenzo and the adventure begins with beautiful scenery. In the reserve there is a waterfall where you can get up there and make a beautiful diving.

A hidden gem not far from Trieste and slovenian border. Actualy the small river comes from Slovenia and enter Italy through a beautiful george. Since there is no more border control for years, the path becames more popular. In the summer dont forget for swimming suits as there are some natural pools

We vistied Val Rosandra on August, it was raining but we continued our hiking till we reached the fine waterfall and the small church which was closed. The path is easy for hiking but do not try to get down the waterfall if you are not well equiped at least with a long roap. We tried but at last we... More

In the valley in the hinterland of Trieste there is a lot of marked trails, in its walls you can find secured climbing routes and climbing walls up to 100 m high. In summer you can refresh in Rosandra stream, which originates at the end of the valley and empties into the Gulf of Trieste. Very beautifull and a lot... More

Between the carso this is a valley where a lot of hiking and climbing paths are available. During autumn people go to see the fall colors.

although at sea level, Val Rosandra is the most incredible "mountain" climbing environment. You can find any possible kind of rock, crags, multi pitch climbs. Well, it's the place where Comici started to climb, what more can you say?

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.
