SAVOGNO AND DASILE
1030m

It is this the most classic hike you can make starting directly from the camping-site. Savogno is a very typical  mountain village where you can see lots of old houses very closed one to each-other and separated by narrow ways. You can reach it by a nice walk along an old muleteer with many steps. There is also a hut at the village and you can also have lunch there, of-course . Dasile is only at half an hour from Savogno, it was built on a sunny, green terrace and from there you can enjoy a nice panoramic view on the entire valley




 

THE ACQUAFRAGGIA LAKE
2040m

Those who want to walk longer  may go on after Savogno and reach the lake where the Acquafraggia creek begins its way and forms- further below - the famous waterfall. It is a pretty long hike and it is better to start early in the morning especially during summer time because all the path receives lots of sun. You can enjoy the freshness you need beside the lake and relax in this special, lonely place.

More extention from the Lake to the Chiara and Walter bivouac or longer crossing over alpine passes

BIVACCO GARZONEDO
