Place of departure: Rifugio Bosio-Galli
Maximum altitude: 2675 m
Difference in altitude: + 1200 m / -1300 m
Route time: 7 h
Distance: 13.5 km

Stage of considerable development, with the arduous ascent of Val Sassersa, interrupted by the pleasant meeting of the 3 lakes di Sassersa, up to Passo Ventina. Extraordinarily varied, through very different environments, from Alpe Mastabbia offers a beautiful view of Bernina group. Free of dangers, it is extraordinarily varied and suggestive, as well as rich in ethnographic and naturalistic interest (talc quarries, soapstone quarries, mountain pastures). With this stage one enters the heart of the Disgrazia group.

NOTE:
It is possible from Alpe Giumellino to continue to Alpe Pirlo and then to go up. In this case the stage is extended by about an hour of walking. At the Pirlo Alp you can see ancient lathes used for the processing of soapstone.
