GTA Variant of Alti Valli Anzasca and Antrona: Stage 16F Buon Pastore Refuge - Sant'Antonio of Val Vogna

da Alagna Valsesia a Riva Valdobbia (3,90 km)
Highlights and tour details

From Rifugio Pastore, we cross the Sesia again taking us on the left bank on the mule track that shortly descends to the "Zam wisse boch" (White Water Waterfall at 1495 m) and, after a few hairpin bends, to the square below called "Acqua Bianca" (White Water). We must follow the carriage road from here that leads to Alagna, passing through the square of Wold, 1278 m where the car can be parked. The next section of the road is open to traffic. Shortly before Alagna near Pedemonte, the road reconnects to the route of stage 25 that descends from Colle Mud and we go from the centre of Alagna following the provincial road for 2.8 km to Riva Valdobbia. From here we take the Val di Vogna road which climbs up with hairpin bends, first passing the little church of the Madonna delle Pose (where the valley people once stopped with their loads on their shoulders), the hamlet of Ca' di Janzo and finally reaching S. Antonio (1380 m) with the Rifugio Valle Vogna overlooking the church.
