Round tour of Lake Cavloc and Bitabergh
Show all 3 images
Child-friendly hike from Maloja to two enchanting mountain lakes above the Maloja Pass.
The ascent leads from the Maloja Orden car park over the Orlegna dam. From here you can either take the smuggler's pafd ''Capel'', which is very popular with children, or take the "normal" route through a bright larch forest to Lägh da Bitabergh. After a refreshment in the lake, we follow the signs to Lägh da Cavloc and after some ups and downs we slowly climb the 50 meters in altitude to the highest point of the hike.
Soon we see the Lägh da Cavloc with the Pizzi dei Rossi in the background. It doesn't matter whether we turn left or right at the fork in the road at the lake - 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 follow the road, past the Salecina Educational Centre, back to Maloja Orden.
About 200 m south of the lake is the Alp da Cavloc, a goat alp with direct sales of the typical Bergell Mascarpel and other cheese specialties.
Goats and suckler cows graze on the alpine meadows in summer. Please read the signs and follow the recommendations of the alpine farmers!
Here you will find rules of conduct for encounters with suckler cows.
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 artificial basin of Orlegna. Follow the top of the wall and, having reached the opposite side, turn right entering a coniferous forest. Soon you come to an edge beyond which appears the pond of Bitabergh. Go around it to the right and continue leaving the pond behind. Reached the nearby junction with signs, continue to the left along a flat path that remains near a slight depression. A short descent then leads to the shores of the enchanting Lake Cavlocc. 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 pretty refreshment point. Following the wide road downhill, you return to Maloja.
