Hike from Pavicolo to San Pancrazio

A high altitude hike on the sunny side above the Val d’Ultimo valley awaits us

The small cable way west of Lana (Val d'Ultimo road) takes us up to the hamlet of Pavicolo where we visit the St. Oswald Church first. Then we follow the path no. 10 towards San Pancrazio.

This high-altitude trail leads us through a varied landscape of dense coniferous forests, green meadows, small hamlets and mountain farms. The path snakes its way through narrow side valleys with bubbling mountain streams. After half way we decide to stop at the Leachn rest point in the locality of Guggenberg.

The descent to San Pancrazio leads us through the forest and crosses the asphalt road to the mountain farms. We complete our hike with a walk through the village centre and a visit to the local church. Afterwards we turn back to the valley station of the Pavicolo Cable Car by bus.

Please note: As there are also some exposed spots on this hike, sturdy footwear and surefootedness are required.
