Although there is not much difference in altitude between the two places, the trail goes up and down, including through the wild Val Luver (the border valley between Switzerland and Italy) and over the Zernone stream. Apart from the non-linear route, this route is very varied and can also be an interesting extension of the well-known panoramic trail from Casaccia to Soglio.  However, one should not be mistaken by the short distances, the trail is more demanding than a quick glance at the map would lead one to think.

The connection Dasciun - Sommasascia is temporarily interrupted, the bridge is destroyed.


Possibility of accommodation or refreshment at the refuge


The trail has a number of exposed passages of medium difficulty to overcome.


Mountain boots, hiking poles, identity card, packed lunch .


In Soglio, at the car park in the western part of the village, the hike begins on a comfortable, flat little road to the pastures of Dasciun. From here, you have to carefully follow the narrow path cut into the steep slope. It leads to the stream in Val Luver, which marks the Swiss-Italian border. On the Italian side, the path crosses some rocky sections on a small suspension bridge, then goes over a metal staircase and finally continues through the forest. In this first section, you can often catch impressive glimpses of the wild valley.

The path then becomes a beautiful path supported by stone walls and leads to the meadows near the former border guard barracks. At the western edge of the meadows, a long descending path begins across the pastures, leading first to the Galleggione huts and then to the footbridge over the Willdbach Zernone stream. Immediately after the little bridge, turn right, follow the course of the stream and then begin a steep climb with hairpin bends, gaining a few hundred metres in altitude and reaching the huts and pastures of Calestro (1182 m). After a short descent, you come to a fork with signposts, where you leave the path and continue on a flat track, where a little later you have to overcome a fairly steep section with metal ropes. A short time later you reach some huts called "Monte del Togn", at the foot of a beautiful rocky peak. Continuing through the woods, you take another descending path and finally reach the path that leads up from Villa di Chiavenna. You cross a valley floor that is mostly dry and begin the final part of the route, which leads steadily and slightly uphill to Savogno. From Savogno, you can descend comfortably along the beautiful mule track or take the variant via the waterfalls of Acquaraggia, both leading to Borgonuovo di Piuro and then to Chiavenna.
