Details

This pleasant route can be accessed from several different points - Sottoguda, Col di Rocca, Saviner di Laste and runs first alongside the Pettorina Torrent, then alongside of Cordevole Torrent, never losing sight of the striking "Wall of Walls", the north-west face of the Civetta, a grade-6 climbing location that has been the site of a number impressive mountaineering endeavours. Along the way you can meet  small villages and hamlets with wonderful views. Between Saviner and Alleghe there is Santa Maria delle Grazie where you can admire the Sanctuary and the 17th-century church. A little further on you can catch the first glimpse of the picturesque Alleghe Lake, formed by the landslide of Mount piz in 1771. A walk around the shores of these emerald waters will take you to the village of Masarè, where you can either retrace you steps or take the bus to return to the start point.
