Hi Walkies,

Refreshing temperatures at 2,600m above sea level with great views of Leventina from the north, 2 peaks (the shorter option has 1 peak), several lakes, alpine feel. Note: This time, the shorter option is not very short, and still requires some (usual) hiking fitness.

We will meet at the pass, and walk directly from there. First on a road, then a very short steep uphill, turning into more moderate uphills, with panoramas that just keep coming and coming. Picnic at the first peak, Pizzo Canariscio 2,525m, then on to Posmeda, 2,616m, and down on a path high above Lago del Sella. (Short option will go down directly to the Lago after Pizzo Canariscio).

Difficulty: T2. Regular mountain hike.
Distance: 11.5 km (shorter option 9.4km)
Uphill/downhill: 685m (shorter option 520m)
