Val Vezzola e Val Trela
Sant'Antonio - Sant'Antonio
Starting from Sant'Antonio di Scianno follow path N196 to Alpe Gattonino. Turn right here onto the track that leads up the grassy slope and into the Cadangola Valley to the Alpe Vezzola, at the beginning of the plateau of the same name. This is a typical high plateau with some mountain huts, in part renovated, surrounded by summits such as Monte Trela and Dosso Rosaccio.read more
Continue all the way through the valley until you reach a fork: take a right along path N130 until you reach the pastures of Alpe Trela. A farm track now leads you across the stream where you overlook Val Corta, a rocky gorge where you can admire the geological strata of the slopes of Cima Doscopa. It crosses the Val Pettini and then continues along the wide road that runs past the Cancano dams and the Lago delle Scale until the Torri di Fraele. From here you descend via the hairpin bends of the Cancano road back to Sant'Antonio.Farming in Alta Valtellina The richness of its pastures has meant that the Alta Valtellina region has always been used for livestock farming. This tradition is maintained in the village dairies that process the milk from small farms into local cheeses.
