Hi Walkies,

Some cooler summer days expected, so here is a hike, not so far up, and.....not so far from Lugano. Another beautiful section of the Italo-Svizerra border. 3 mountains (Cima di Fojorina 1,809m, Cima Mose 1,726m, Cima Dell'Oress 1,705m) 2 border mountain passes (Passo di Fojorina, Passo di Pianca Bella).

We will first meetup in Protected content for coffee, then drive up to Cimadera.

Difficulty: T2 (on a scale from 1-5, 5 being most difficult).
This is a mountain hike.

Height gain: 740m (over 5km, so not so steep)
Height loss: 740m
Distance: 10 km

A bit easier option: At one point, some can take a shortcut, skip the highest point, and save about 100m of uphill, and 0.6km.

If time allows, we will offer the option to add Il Torrione in the Italian territory to our conquests.

Bring:

Hiking shoes
Hiking sticks (recommended)
Food
Water
Sunscreen

Any questions? Call or Whatsapp me at Protected content

See y'all,
DJ
