Description
A lengthy hike that takes you through the town of Mergoscia but other than that goes through a forest, pretty much far from anything. It's a good choice if you want to be surrounded by wilderness but a bad one if you want to catch a taste of the valley, since it doesn't really get close to the Vogorno lake or the river. Still, at times you get more than impressive views from way above the lake at the whole valley and the villages on the other side of the lake. At the end of the hike you're again rewarded with the view and taste of Corippo, a beautiful medieval village crowded with rusticos where time seems to have stopped centuries ago.
