Traditional herding of sheep from high pasture in Vernago

About 2200 sheep and 300 goats leave from the “Niedertal-Alm“ (A) early in the morning. The sheep reach Niederjoch near the Similaun hut (3019 m) at about 9 am. They arrive in Vernago (1700m) at about 2 pm.
Traditional shepherd festival from 10 am with traditional music, grilled mutton and other Schnals Valley specialities.

Important: In Vernago are existing only little park possibilities, therefore we recommend the use of the shuttle service (€ 2,00 per person/journey) from Madonna di Senales (from 9.30 am to 4 pm). Walking time: approx. 1 hour for the increase and 40 min. for the descent along the hiking trail no. 15.
