Trekking Lucomagno - Passo del sole - Altanca
Show all 5 images
This tour is not part of the signaled snowshoe trail net. We are in open terrain, where we have to assess the dangers ourselves.
We take a taxi to the Lukmanier Pass early in the morning. From the parking lot in Casaccia we follow the many lanes southwards and we cross the Brenno on a wooden bridge. Through a pine forest, which is peppered with very gnarled and old specimens, it goes up to Alpe Lareccio. Picturesque rusticis want to seduce us to a rest, but we are drawn to it, because it is still too early. We hike past the alpine huts into the Rondadoira valley. After a short descent, the valley becomes wider and soon we see as far as the Passo del sole. Once at the top, the Val Piora is at our feet on the other side and we also have a good overview of the second part of our tour.
It goes mostly downhill, sometimes gentler sometimes steeper and in between there are also small counter-climbs in it. Already quite a bit before the Ritomsee we stop towards the hill to the left of the lake. This is the biggest counter-increase. Over this hill, over Costone, leads in the summer a hiking trail, the traces of which we can find off. Through the small and picturesque Tälchen Pinett we reach the dam wall. Depending on the snow conditions, we follow the summer trail down to Altanca.
Last way back: from Altanca by Postbus 16.41h / from Airolo by train 17.46
Ideal spring tour: From Ritom Reservoir there is little snow left and we can pack up the snowshoes.
Enough provisions: There is no refreshment stop on the way to Airolo.
Hiking map of swisstopo 1:25.000 is an advantage
