From Pian delle Betulle to Val Biandino


We start from Pian delle Betulle for a panoramic trekking of 3 hours and 30 to discover the beautiful Val Biandino.

We reach the Pian delle Betulle 1484 by cable car from Margno ( info on site or by car from Alpe di Paglio and then to Pian delle Betulle on foot in about 15 minutes.

From here we follow the signs to the Alpe Ortighera ( 1505 m and then the Lares Brusaa ( 1708 m)which can be reached in about an hour , walking along the easy agro-forestry-pastoral road. In a sunny day the view of the Grigna , the Valsassina and Lake Como and Lake Lugano is beautiful.

We follow the trail to thRifugio S. Rita and then to the Cima di Olino the view also opens the area of the Piani di Bobbio and Artavaggio. We start to climb the grassy slope of Pizzo Cornagiera , facing the Pizzo dei Tre Signori.

At the location Laghitt ( 1939 m ), there are two mountain lakes a chapel and some picnic tablesThe landscape ranges now also on Valvarrone.

We still follow the signs to the Rifugio S. Rita which from here is still a 1-hour journeyIt now begins to descend through fields and bushes overlooking the Valvarrone left and Val Biandino right.

Walking along the ridge we pass under a high voltage pylon and after a flat , and we continue to go down passing under the cables of another pylonFrom here we take a trail that goes down in 30 minutes direct to the Val Biandino and Rifugio Tavecchia ( mountains hut trail markers indicate Rifugio Bocca di Biandino ).

There are other paths that descend to Val Biandino in the tract from Lares Brusaa – Laghitt , before arriving precisely at the two lakes. The first falls from the Bocchetta of Agoredo and passes for the Alpe Abi , reaching Val Biandino in 1 hour 40 minutes ; the second cross just before the Laghitt ( attention, here there is no trail marker ) and it falls more quickly in about 1 hour ( in dialect is called Path of Cows baecause it is used with the herds ).
