Lukmanier Alps

The Lukmanier region is traversed by 180 km of hiking trails. About 70 km of these have been chosen as nature trails, allowing visitors to discover the natural wonders of this beautiful region.

Setting off from Acquacalda, hikers will cross various mountains, including those that are still working operations, including Pian Segno Alp (or Lukmanier Alp), Casaccia Alp, Pertusio Alp and Croce Alp. The first mountain you reach is Pozzetta Alp, followed by Samprou Alp and Casaccia Alp. From here head up to Pertusio Alp and the Lukmanier Pass to then reach Croce Alp and descend to Gana Alp. You then head for Campo Solario and Lareccio. After crossing Frodalera and Brönich, you will encounter Pian Segno-Lukmanier Alp and subsequently return to Acquacalda.

Montagnepulite: This project was born to promote an effective management and sustainable use of mountain huts in Ticino, and in particular the litter management. The responsible management of litter in the mountains is a matter of common sense. We can all contribute: https://www.montagnepulite.ch/en/golden-rules
