The High Route of Valmalenco – 5th stage

Place of departure: Alpe Lago Palù
Maximum altitude: 2813 m
Difference in altitude: + 1400 m / -600 m

Route time: 6 h
Distance: 12 km

It is the classic stage that allows you to enter the heart of the Bernina group, in an area still characterized by the presence of large glaciers, among the largest in the Italian Alps. Marinelli shelter is one of the most important and well-known alpine refuges. It was also the first, together with the Corna Rossa hut (later Rif. Desio, temporarily unusable) to be built in Valmalenco in the distant 1880. After Bocchel del Torno, in a context characterized by a strong naturalness, it spreads along the ski slopes, in part recently built, to reach and follow the ancient mule track that led from Lanzada to Marinelli shelter, through extensive woods, the pastures of Alpe Campascio and those higher of Alpe Musella. Upstream from Alpe Musella, at about 2240 m, you meet the path from Campo Moro and it continues alternating morainic uplands and steep slopes up to Carate shelter, a few meters from Bocchetta delle Forbici, where the most spectacular and well-known opens view of the Bernina group reflects in the waters of the lake with the same name.
