On Saturday, we will take it easy, reach San Carlo, take the 11.00 cable car to Robièi, walk around some of the lakes. First part easy, then some can go back and to the capanna, and those who want, can choose to continue a longer, and a bit more demanding walk.

Easy option: total 5.4km, 260m up, 270m down.
'Challenge' option: total 8.9km 600m up, 600m down. a small part of the uphill has cables to hold for support. The downhill is mainly one steep downhill, but requires no special equipment.

On Sunday, we will wait for people coming up with the 10.00 cable car, and, weather permitting, head to Bocchetta di Val Maggia, the geographical starting point of the valley, at 2,635m above s.l., on the Italian border. Spectacular mountains, some glaciers and alpine lake.

All that beauty come with a price, some sweat. Quote: "Oltre la salita impegnativa per uscire dalla conca di Robiei, il sentiero corre lungo il fondovalle pianeggiante. È la gita sicura anche per le famiglie con bambini irrequieti."
Along the way, however, 2 short options will be offered for those who had enough.

Difficulty:

Level: T2, medium mountain hike
Uphill: ca. 870m
Downhill: ca. 870m
Distance: 9.7km

Accomodation: please, each person is responsible for own reservation.

Big smile!
