TRANSHUMANCE TICKET

The transhumance in Val Senales Valley, which is still practiced and deeply rooted in local tradition, dates back 600 years. This ancient tradition is now part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. The annual migration in Val Senales Valley is the only cross-border and trans-glacial transhumance in existence. Every year, the shepherds lead flocks of 3,000 – 4,000 sheep on a mass migration from Vernago and Maso Corto across two mountain passes to the fertile pastures of Vent in neighboring Austria. The transhumance in the Val Senales Valley covers more than 40km, across gullies and snow-covered fields.

In September sheep, shepherds and dogs are coming back. For this occasion, we have created a ticket, which is valid only on 11th September 2022 - the special transhumance ticket.
