Hang gliders in the Upper Venosta Valley

The Vinschger Oberland (also Vinschgauer Oberland or Obervinschgau ) is a part of the Vinschgau in South Tyrol . The Oberland is the highest section of the Adige Valley below the Reschen .


The Vinschgau is divided into either two or three sections, depending on the author. The border between the Lower Venosta and Upper Venosta is divided into two at the Gadria alluvial cone between Schlanders and Laas . A tripartite division leaves the lower Vinschgau the same, but distinguishes in the higher valley section between the middle and the upper Vinschgau: The beginning of the Malser Haide between Glurns and Mals is understood as the border between the Mittelvinschgau and the actual Vinschger Oberland .
