Behaviour in the mountains

Exploring the South Tyrolean Mountains is one of the most incredible experiences a mountaineer can have. To make sure that every undertaking ends well, you have to follow some simple rules.

We are all part of nature and it is our duty to take care about nature and mountain like we do about ourselves. Because of that we recommend you hiking only on the marked paths, to not throw your rubbish irresponsibly away and to behave respectfully with the vegetation and with the animals.

In the pasture the cows are really good: fresh grass and plenty of space to move around.

Attention: cattle!

Especially mother cows feel togetherness with the herd and have a protective instinct against trespassers. For the safety & well-being of hikers, visitors are invited to respect some basic rules:

  • Do not walk off the hiking tracks and keep to a distance of 20 – 30 meters from the herd.
  • Never touch the cattle and particularly baby animals.
  • Keep your dog on the leash and release him only in emergency.
  • Do not hit the cows with a stick.
  • If the cows cross your way, go round them but keep an eye on them.
  • Before animals attack, they communicate with calming signals, lowering the head, pawing the ground etc.
  • For the protection of cattle hikers are kindly invited to follow the instructions in the mountains of South Tyrol. Always respect the flowers, plants and animals.
