Hi everyone!

I am pleased to invite you to discover Val di Mello, one of the most beautiful valleys across the Alps, in Valtellina area: a great opportunity to take pictures, in a paradise for landscape photographers! As usual, bring your camera, and a tripod, if you own it: we can try different settings on our cameras, and watching the differences we can get in our photos.
Not very far from Milan, about Protected content , it is a place where it’s possible to feel fully immersed in the nature, animals live in freedom in the upper part, sometimes it’s possible to see them.
East to west, in the same way as Valtellina: here we are where Eurasian and African plates collide.
We’ll walk for around 4 km, till Rasica refuge at Protected content (only Protected content difference in height), having around us several mountains over Protected content .
Amazing rocky walls, spectacular morainic cirques and plateaus alternating with jumps crossed by waterfalls. Currently the glacial phenomena are very reduced at the upper end of the circuses and the small remaining glaciers, with few exceptions, are little more than perennial snowfields. From there, a constant water flow forms falls, streams and little lakes.

MEALS
At lunch, we’ll stop in a typical small refuge (you pay what you order), and then in the evening, we can stop at Colico, in the northern part of Como lake, for a walk on the long lake and in a pub for a beer.

CARS
Estimated transport’s cost is 25 euro per car, to be shared.

See you there!
