GTA: Stage 9 Riale - Alpe Vannino

Formazza (7,80 km)

Highlights and tour details

The stage starts in front of Hotel Aalts Dorf in Riale, where an arrow and a commemorative plaque indicate the beginning of the "Sentiero Mario Rigoni Stern", which rises clearly up to the Furculti plateaus and crosses the alpine pasture track to Alpe Nefelgiù. The path is to remember the writer's presence in Formazza in the winter of 1938-1939 on the occasion of the Skiers Course of the Alpine Military School. Go up the Rigoni Stern path to Furculti and then take the track on the left until you firstly reach a wetland with some small lakes and then the plateau with Alpe Nefelgiù. From here you reach the homonymous pass going along a wide detritus valley. The descent on the opposite side from the pass has steeper slopes, with the path that descends on narrow hairpin bends towards Lake Vannino and the stage stop-off place, Rifugio Margaroli.
