Discover the eastern Valais Alps in 9 stages over 122 kilometers.
8th stage: In the shadow of the Andolla From Alpe Laghetto you climb up to the Campo lakes, a series of water mirrors that are located below the slopes of Monte Straciugo, the highest peak in the Bognanco valley. From the Pontimia Pass, from which you have a view of the peaks of the Upper Bognancotal and the Zwischenbergental, you then enter the plateaus that stretch to below the Andolla Pass. You walk along the picturesque lakes of Pontimia, through the ruins of the mountain huts of the Alpe of the same name, across meadows with a view of the strict peaks of the Andolla and Weissmies. From the Andolla Pass you can then reach the Antronatal by descending into the valley basin, which extends towards the Andolla Alps.
Enjoy the view over the Alpine ridge and listen to the silence of nature.
