Monday 18 July 2016. Just 5 of us and our leader Anne on today’s 6 mile easy walk around Alpe di Suisi with a total ascent and descent of 1,700ft. It was a spectacular day weather wise with warm sunshine and 27c; a little too warm for walking.
We took a new (to me) ski lift from Ortesei up to a height of about 6,500ft before making an easy climb to look down on the Alpe du Suisi. This is a vast area of alpine meadow, much of which is being currently mown to make hay. Luckily some of it was still uncut and we were able to see a profusion of alpine flowers. I was so impressed that I even took a couple of pictures. The rest of the walk was down to the valley floor and back up again to our starting point for the lift to Ortesei and a bus back to Selva.
