On the way of alpine pastures-3: Monte Lema - Alpe di Mageno - Breno

Alpe owned by the Patriciate of Breno loaded with about seventy goats, with the production of cheese on the spot.

The trail take us from the summit of Monte Lema on the floor through the mountain pastures in a suggestive rural naturalistic landscape, rich in history and emotions between scents of rhododendrons and majestic beech woods, historical chestnut woods and old buildings as evidence of past labors.

You will be able to meet herds of cows, cows Scottish, herds of goats and horses grazing on colorful slopes, partly colonized in an almost intrusive way from the green alder in the upper part of the territory and from the broom and fern to the floor.

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
