From Isone to Tesserete across Gola di Lago

Isone is the last stop on the Post Bus route into the Isone Valley, and this rugged terrain is best known as the training ground for Switzerland’s military division of mountain infantrymen. The deep valleys and steep wooded mountainsides also ensure an interesting and diverse terrain for hiking. The hike from Isone to Tesserete across the Gola di Lago starts just below the Church of San Lorenzo in Isone, and requires about 250m of uphill climbing through chestnut forests before reaching a fairly level trail for the next approx. 6 km. Along the way to the high moor of Gola di Lago (also a shooting range for the military) we get superb views of Monte Tamaro and the whole Isone Valley, and we pass through some pretty grove birches, almost lovelier in profile in their late autumn nakedness.

At Alpe S.ta Maria to the West of Gola di Lago is a forked path, and both paths rejoin about one kilometer later. The lower, or easternmost path winds past lovely stone homes and affords great views of the scattered homesteads along the flanks of Monte Bar / Caval Drossa. The descent to Tesserete takes you through the lovely hamlet of Condra on a sunny alp, then past the Santa Maria monastery with its pilgrim walk down to the village of Bigorio, whose narrow lanes and alleyways are worth a visit before the last descent to Tesserete.
