The high route of Valmalenco - presentation

Thanks to its variety of places, is one of the most beautiful high altitude excursion routes in the Alps: the richness of natural flora, the presence of soapstone old quarries, Mountain huts, shepherds’ buildings and panoramic views make it unique of its kind. Alta Via extends for over 110 Km, between 800 and 3000 metres, through woods and high pastures, passing through lateral valleys, climbing over impassable passes and winding before glaciers flows of Monte Disgrazia, of Pizzo Bernina and of Pizzo Scalino. Articulated into eight daily stages, it connects some fifteen refuges. All the route develops along three well indicated pathways.
