Capanna Campo Tencia

The hut is situated on a terrace overlooking the upper part of the Val Piumogna and has 2 refectories for a total of 88 seats, 7 rooms, a pay shower and graphic panels inside the hut showing possible itineraries.

Ideal base for various excursions, crossings to other huts (Leit, Sponda), and fascinating climbs for example to the Pizzo Campo Tencia, which with its 3071 m is the highest peak entirely in Ticino, and which is also an important ski mountaineering route.

In the period January to March the region is a paradise for lovers of ice falls, with climbs ranging from 80 to 150 meters. This area is also suitable for alpinism courses for beginners and children. Several nature trails, including the lake of Morghirolo these routes are well described in the book published by CAS Ticino edited by Angelo Valsecchi entitled "Field Tencia, the mountain with the dirty stone".

In the area there are several climbing possibilities for children in the different "klettergarten" with routes of difficulty between the third and sixth.
