A spectacle of ridges, rocks, pastures and refuges.

A linear itinerary for "expert" hikers which starts from the blue of Lake Maggiore and leads to demanding alpine environments characterised by rocks, scree and some aerial passages.

Almost a week away from any village or dwelling, with no roads, no cable cars, no artificial lakes, no high voltage lines or antennas to spoil the natural experience: the Chamois Trekking follows one of the most unspoilt mountain ranges in the Swiss Alps. Starting from Cimetta above Cardada, a famous tourist destination near Locarno, five days of ups and downs take us to the slopes of Pizzo Campo Tencia, the peak par excellence of Ticino. Thanks to the refuges, all situated at around 2000 metres, the route always remains at high altitude, allowing you to enjoy the environment without excessive height differences.

Tips for personal equipment

Emphasis should be placed on lightness and avoiding unnecessary weight. The weight of the bag should not exceed 7 kg, all (multi-layered clothing, underwear, fleece, gore-tex jacket). Avoid bulky jackets and cotton clothes. Put your clothes in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain. Reduce packaging as much as possible.
