Description

Sweeping sheets of clean granite spread out over chains of mountains, the Bergell valley (Val Bregaglia) offers alpine adventures for the the plaisir climbers and many opportunities for more wild times.

A ring of huts provide base camps for the well-heeled (See Sasc Furä http://www.sascfura.ch/ and Capana di Sciora http://www.sachoherrohn.ch/main.asp?cid=36 on the Swiss side, Rifugio Gianetti on the Italian side). Camping tolerated pretty much anywhere in the alpine.

See the Bergell description on the Italian page for more info. But a lot of the good climbing starts in Swtizerland!

Getting There

To Sasc Furä:

Public transit: Train to St. Moritz, bus to Bondo. About 3 hr hike from town.

Car: purchase 12 chf toll in Bondo at the start of the mtn road, drive to the parking lot. Best path to the capanna starts at *bottom* of the parking lot, crossing the river immediately.

I just add the scan of the Bondasca Valley from map.geo.admin.ch ( map.geo.admin.ch/?topic=ech…,,,) . Excellent for navigation in Swiss. You can zoom in and see the map. Also you can search, calculate gain, distance and required time for chosen points. Mar 23, 2016
