Via Alta Vallemaggia

We have a challenging stage ahead today. From Spluga we climb to the Pascolo dei Laghi and the Bocchetta del Sasso Bello, passing through into the Lavizzara, where we will be for the next few days. The steep descent and the unstable footing require care, especially in large groups. 

After making our way past an expanse of boulders we find ourselves at the top of the Cima di Broglio, coming now to a number of easier climbs and a truly spectacular aerial stretch, aided by some cables. Then comes another heap of stones, a series of smooth plates with more cables, and the entrance into the Valle dei Pini, also well-equipped, and the climb to the Passo di Chènt. From there we have a complex descent into the Val Tomè. After so many hours of rough and rocky landscapes, our eyes finally alight on the edge of a small droplet-shaped lake. The Capanna Tomeo is just a short distance away, and with it comes the satisfaction of having experienced an unforgettable day.
