Pizzo Vogorno

From the Cima dell’Uomo hike downhill all the way to just above the Colletto di Torasella (in the direction of the Borgna Hut). Then head west below the Madone, passing below the Bocchetta di Rognoi to reach a small ledge equipped with chains, just below Pizzo Vogorno. Continue uphill on this small ledge until reaching the steep pasture slope that leads to the top of Pizzo Vogorno. The trail is marked in white and red. From Pizzo Vogorno descend to the Bardughè Hut (trail marked in white and blue) – a tract without any particular challenges. From there hike down all the way to Vogorno. The descent from Pizzo Vogorno to the village of Vogorno is very long (a difference in elevation of 1,800 m).
Well-trained hikers can complete this hike in a day; others are well advised to overnight at the Borgna Hut.
