Pian Geirètt und Val Camadra
The second stage of the three-day tour through the Greina to the Lukmanier Pass leads from the Capanna Scaletta to the Capanna Bovarina. The route runs through high-montane spruce forest, over Maiensässwiesen and at the end through larch forest with mixed spruces. In autumn, when the needles of the larches turn yellow, the top section is particularly scenic.

Description

Stage 2: From Capanna Scaletta to Capanna Bovarina

On a narrow, partly steep and zigzag path it goes down into the basin Pian Geirètt. In the gorge-like upper steep step there are bizarre Rauhwacke towers to admire south of the path. Up to the group of houses of Daigra you move mainly on alpine pastures and between Alpine alder bushes. East of the Alpe di Camadra di Dentro, it is worth taking a look at the small gorge of the Brenno with its waterfalls and whirlpool pots. The trail is well marked and avoids the paved alpine and forest road as much as possible, but is sometimes a bit steep. In front of us rises the striking rock block of the Sosto. From Daigra it is only moderately steep through spruce forest, partly along the Brenno through floodplain forest down to Campo. In the village of Campo there is the possibility to refresh yourself in one of the restaurants. Then it goes on a well-marked path, initially steep, then a little more leisurely and finally steeply up to capanna Bovarina. The route runs through high-montane spruce forest, over Maiensässwiesen and at the end through larch forest with mixed spruces. In autumn, when the needles of the larches turn yellow, the top section is particularly scenic.
