  • You have to have some condition, but the experience is terrific. Great views to the left and to the right change constantly. On a beautiful day you can see hundreds of mountain peaks. The high-altitude path is good to follow, but tread safety and a certain amount of dizziness are necessary. Good hiking boots with intact profile soles an absolute must! Then nothing stands in the way of an eventful day! Don't forget enough drinks and snacks!

  • Beautiful trekking-crossing challenging hike-with views at high altitude on the ridge that allow you to see the two lakes: Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano. Coming up with the cable car Alpe Foppa (1,530 m) is there to see the modern Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, designed by m. Botta negli anni 90. There are games for children and an adventure park, paragliding, mountain biking and nordic walking. Increases to monte Tamaro after about an hour's walk (1,962 m): the views are superb. Start here a path along the mountain ridge to monte Lema (m. 1620) that requires some practice, not so much for the fix as for the length; in a yellow sign atop Mount Tamaro is indicated 3 hours and 10 but in reality it takes 4 hours (the sign is incorrect!) In fact from Monte Lema to Milleglia there is a convenient cable car, but we had to walk the whole descent (about 2 more hours!) because the problem of calculated times ill because of incorrect sign we missed the last bus from monte Lema to Milleglia in summer is at 17 45!
