From Casaccia the trail starts steeply uphill towards Val Maroz. The route passes romantic farmsteads and alpine pastures. After about five kilometers, the trail turns left towards Val da Cam and climbs up to the Lägh da Cam at 2400 meters above sea level. From here, you descend and with a splendid panoramic view of the Bondasca Valley you reach Plan Lo. Then continue to the right on a downhill path to the farmsteads of Plan Vest to end the route with a steep descent to Soglio. The entire route is not very exposed, but at the beginning and especially at the end of the descent to Soglio it is very steep.

Author’s recommendation

Running this trail in reverse will also increase the height difference.         

It can be shortened via Furtschellas/Nambrun or Plan Lo in Vicosoprano.

Turn-by-turn directions

The first part of the path follows a small forest path up to Maroz Dora. Continue following the wide track through the pasture until you reach the long cottage of Maroz Dent. Here you go down to cross the Maira river and continue on the path that, making wide turns, goes up the slope until you reach an evident indentation marked by several stone cairns. Beyond this edge the Val di Cam opens up, while in the background the majestic peaks of the Val Bondasca appear. Continue to the center of the wide valley and reach the highest point (2463 m) after which the descent begins. From an excellent panoramic point you can see the entire Val Bregaglia and a good part of the remaining itinerary, of which you can recognize the Tombal terrace. The path continues well carved into the steep slope of Piz Duan. Continue for a long stretch passing above the Castel, Planac and Mungat huts until you reach the Cadrin buildings that are falling down. Follow the beautiful mule track downhill to Plän Vest and then enter the forest again to Tombal. A final descent leads to Soglio.
