It is a worthwhile route, but it is very long, especially downhill. The ascent runs along the Bergeller valley flank, initially through forest, alternating with the serene clearings of the Monti of Villa. Further up you come to the alpine pastures of the Val Casnaggina, whose stream is the border line. This is where the route meets that of Ceresc. So you could continue the route to the bivouac Pedroni-Del Pra. The path over the pass, on the other hand, descends through the Val Codera, which you follow in the flat valley floor. On the way you will meet the villages of Bresciadega and Codera: they are the two main towns of the valley, inhabited almost all year round. You can do the whole hike in one day, or stay at Rifugio Brasca and other accommodations in Val Codera.


W / The gully that leads up to the pass on the Bergeller side can be snowy, but only at the beginning of the season; but then it is better to have a pimple and suitable footwear. Marking red-white enough on the whole route; Notes at the main branches.


From Canete you walk about a hundred meters on the road for agricultural and forestry traffic and then turn right into the mule track that leads to the meadow terrace of Scalotta (883 m). Continue at the junction left and cross the Vertura stream on the bridge. On this section you cross several times the new road that leads up to the Monti di Villa, which can only be used with a driving permit from the municipality. Further upwards you pass the Mountain waters of Tabiadascio and Campaccio to the Roccolo, at the edge of a meadow terrace at the western end of the Laghetti (1243 m). The path does not lead to this Maiensäss, but diagonally along the right side of a depression; later you enter the forest, from which you only come out at Foppate (1378 m). Arriving on a mountain meadow at the tree line, you continue on path tracks, along the gravel bed of a trickle and then up through a valley cut full of dense alder bushes. Above this you reach the open slopes of the high Val Casnaggina. Gradually extending to the left over stony terrain, one aims at a debris channel that slopes off the Bocchetta della Teggiola. You climb it as close to the center as possible, and reach the Bocchetta at an altitude of 2490 m. On the Val Codera side, you easily climb over a scree slope and move to the middle of a depression between the ridges that descend from the Pizzo dei Vanni. On this plateau stands the walls of the post, which until about the fifties were permanently occupied by customs guards who were supposed to prevent the passage of smuggled goods. Below you descend over steep grassy slopes to the crossroads of the path to the bivouac Pedroni-Del Pra (1 hour from the crossroads). You climb further and further down the valley on a good path and thus come to the huts of Alp Sivigia (1939 m). Here you continue on the path, which is embedded in a considerable rock step. At its foot it goes out for a while through the flat valley, in places along the left edge of the stream bed. but the path has partially disappeared due to recent floods, so you have to walk partly in the creek bed. Through a beautiful forest you come to Rifugio Brasca (1304 m). A road leads to the hamlet of Bresciadega (1241 m) and then fairly flat to Codera (825 m). The last part you descend on the beautiful mule track with steps to Novate Mezzola. Return to the starting point by train to Chiavenna and the remaining distance by bus.
