Details

Description

The ascent leads from the Parking Lot Maloja Order over the Orlegna Dam. From here you can either take the smuggler's "Capel", which is very popular with children, or on the "normal" path through a bright larch forest to the Lägh da Bitabergh. After a refreshment in the lake we follow the signs towards Lägh da Cavloc and after some ups and downs we slowly climb the 50 meters of altitude to the highest point of the hike.
Soon we see the Lägh da Cavloc with the Pizzi dei Rossi in the background. Whether we go left or right at the fork in the road at the lake does not matter - both paths lead around the lake and meet on the opposite side at the small Ristorante Cavloccio. Along the lake there are also some official fire pits with firewood.

On the way back to Maloja we will follow the road, past the Salecina Education Centre, back to Maloja Order.

Geheimtipp

About 200 m south of the lake is the Alp da Cavloc, a Ziegenalp with direct sale of the typical Bergeller mascarpel and other cheese specialties.

Sicherheitshinweis

Goats and suckler cows graze on the alpine meadows in summer. Please read the signs and stick to the recommendations of the Älpler:innen!

Directions

It starts from the last hairpin bend of the Maloja Pass and follows the road until you reach a large parking lot. On the corner of the square begins a path that bends to the right and heads to the dam of the Orlegna artificial basin. Walk along the top of the wall and, having reached the opposite side, turn right entering a coniferous forest. In bereve you reach an edge beyond which appears the Bitabergh Pond. You go around it to the right and continue leaving the pond behind. Once you reach the nearby junction with signs, continue to the left along a flat path that remains close to a slight depression. A short descent then leads to the shores of the enchanting Lake Cavloc. Between the two possibilities it is preferable to follow the path that goes around the banks to the right, finally connecting with a small road at a nice refreshment point. Following downhill the wide road you make the return to Maloja.
