Mendelpass east side near Eppan

Etsch valley coming from Bolzano and riding towards Kaltern and Mendel pass. We are just in front of the village Eppan. You can see the rock massif in the background where the Mendel pass road runs along up from the Etsch valley.

Here we have taken already a right leaving Eppan and ride through vine yards already 3mls on the Mendel pass road. You can spot the pass road in the back on the rock from right to left looking like a string.

This is the most beautiful place of the Mendel pass. Little parking bays just allow motorbikes to stop and offer an outstanding view down into the Etsch valley, Kalterer Lake and over to the Dolomite Alps.
