Dance on the soft earth, lie on the green grass and look for colourful flowers in our magical valley! The stunning valley Mesolcina, with its lush fields dotted with wildflowers, is the wonderful home of Shankra Festival. Chestnut trees, pines and firs give their shadows to green grounds, giving birth to the perfect environment to relax, have fun and connect with Nature. The biodiversity of the area, together with the diverse wildlife and flora, gives the opportunity to get in touch with the idyllic image of the valley: fresh air, bright shades and a long history that dates back to ancient times are the background of a memorable festival experience.
As gentle giants, mountains silently guard the valley: look up and feel the immensity of the towering peaks, that donate to us colourful sunsets and delicate dawns, as ever-changing settings of Shankra Festival. The Mesolcina Mountains Chain reaches the height of over three thousand metres, and it is origin of the waterfalls and the transparent lake that lie on the festival grounds: feel inspired by the running waters and refresh yourself between a dance session and a yoga class.
The valley was created by the patient waters of Moesa river, nourishment of the surrounding fields. The crystal-clear waters are home of many types of fishes, and hold a pleasant refreshment during the hot summer days. Look for jumping fishes, while cooling down the dancing feet!
Take a walk and explore the characteristic nearby village: Lostallo stretches on the right shore of Moesa river, at an height of over four hundred metres above sea level. Take a moment to gaze at beautiful dry-stonewalls of the local buildings, built following ancient architectural traditions. The town offers the basic services: supermarkets, ATM, restaurants and bars, and it’s easily reachable from Shankra Festival.
