The route leads to the discovery of Mount Sodadura and its characteristic pyramid shape, starting from the top terminal of Piani di Artavaggio cable car. Several mountain huts are found along the way.

The climb is challenging at some stages but from the view from the top is remarkable.

Take the cable car in Moggio and go up to Piani di Artavaggio. Once there follow the signposts. The first part goes almost flat. Pass on the left Sassi Castelli mountain hut and keep walking until a small church. From there it starts the climb leading to Nicola mountain hut and Cazzaniga-Merlin located at 1900 m.a.s.l.. Continue heading towards Sodadura, the mountain with a characteristic pyramid shape, recognizable from far away thanks to the shape itself. The climb to the summit is a bit challenging and it shouldn’t be underestimated. At some stages it’s necessary to climb the rocks with the help of own hands. Once at the top the view is magnificent.

The roundtrip walk is 2 hours and 30 minutes long.
