Highlights and tour details

Chiappera is the turning point of the itinerary. Leave behind the quartzitic complex of Rocca Castello - Provenzale, the vertiginous drop of the Cascate di Stroppia (waterfall) and take the path on the right, just beyond the cemetery, a hillside that runs along the artificial lake of Saretto reaches the Sorgenti del Maira and climbs, in the thick larch wood to the Ciarbonet hill (2206 m). It is worth the effort for the view from the grassy pass. The descent into the valley of Unerzio retraces an ancient military road which, with wide bends among the pastures, reaches the beautiful granges of Mezzagliera, which have been recently restructured, and further down the valley the characteristic villages of Viviere, Pratorotondo and Chialvetta connected by an ancient path known as "la Scurcio", equipped with thematic information panels and is pleasant to walk along.
