From the Poncione di Braga refuge, continue along the path to the Filo della Tanèda and look out for the turquoise waters of the Lago della Froda glistening below. It's a short descent on rock slabs and stones to the Piatto della Froda, then to the Corte della Froda, surrounded by majestic peaks.
The alp is cultivated in summer: why not stop by for some Vallemaggia cheese? The route then follows a gravel road and a footpath to return, partly through woodland, to the starting point at Piano di Peccia.
Subject to prior reservation (+41 (0)79 577 48 11), a bus can bring walkers to Peccia for connections with timetabled bus services.
