Less well-known hike into the Val dal Saent in the lower part of the Valposchiavo. It leads across the largest alpine pasture in the valley, through larch forests, up above the tree line and to a mountain pass on the Italian border. About halfway through the tour: the two alpine lakes Lagh da la Regina and Lagh dal Mat.

Description

Do you know the lake Lagh da Saoseo in the Val da Camp? Then it's time to discover the Lagh da la Regina and the Lagh dal Mat as well. They are located in the somewhat lesser-known Val dal Saent valley, which is bordered by the Piz Combul hills. They are the two largest of a total of seven lakes that the ice-age glacier formed here in the rocky soils. However, up to three of the very small lakes dry out completely in summer.

The tour starts at the Alpe Pescia Bassa which can be reached by bus (on-demand system) from Cavaione. The trail first climbs up through a larch forest to the clearing of the Alp Li Piani. Continuing along the tree line, you reach the first lake of the hike, the Lagh dal Mat. This is also the highest point of the hike close to the Italian border. The next stop is the smaller Lagh da la Regina.

From here, the route descends to the Col d'Anzana mountain pass. The flat crossing offers a fantastic panorama and is also the borderline between Switzerland and Italy. It connects the Valposchiavo with Teglio in the Valtellina. Further down you arrive at the houses of Pescia Alta, the largest alp in the Valposchiavo. Through a gnarled larch forest and past the Capanna d'Anzana, only two kilometres remain to return to the starting point.
