The mountain range along the eastern shore of Lake Garda – Monte Baldo – is better known than the mountains on the western side. But also the mountains on the western shore can offer good mountaineering destinations. The best destination on the northern part of the west Garda lakeside is its excellent climbing area. And the southern part of the west Garda lakeside is dominated by Monte Pizzocolo. It offers an excellent hiking destination. Though it is only 1582 m high, it is the highest peak in a radius of 12 km. It’s prominence is 636 meter, so it offers an excellent panoramic view, especially to the range of Monte Baldo that is on the opposite side of Lake Garda. You can see also the Lake Garda, and in clear weather the Adamello Group, the Appennines, and many other mountains.
