The so-called Denti di Cavallo mountains are located on the Monte di Mezzo, in the south of Castelchiaro.
The Denti di Cavallo (609 m) are rock formations making you think of horse theeth, which is infact also the literal translation for these mountains. The Denti di Cavallo represent narrowly standing, high and impressive pinnacles that provide a great view on the surroundings, that is to say Bolzano and the Bassa Atesina.
On the way to these mountains, there is a trail branching off to the hot air springs, which are caves out of which 25 degree C° hot air escape the whole year round. The reasons for this phenomenon are still obscure. The view of the Denti di Cavallo makes you imagine what you can see on the other side of the mountains. In the east there is the provincial capital, as well as Laives, Vadena, Bronzolo and Ora, in the west there are Caldaro and Termeno.
