Tour description

A tour which climbs to the alpine meadows of the western Blenio Valley. It requires a good level of stamina.

From Acquarossa we pass Prugiasco and climb to Piede del Sasso on a small asphalted road. A wonderful view of the Blenio Valley and the Adula glacier awaits. At Alpe del Gualdo, after more than 1,200 metres of height gain, the long and technically difficult descent to Püscett begins. Following the asphalted road we descend to Semione and once in the valley we return to the starting point.
