My own Paradise
I love trekking. Here I am in my valley, Valmalenco (Sondrio) in the Caspoggio municipality area. In this pic I am at over 2000mt above the sea.
In this beautiful summer day I reached the top of that very very wonderful montain, the Pizzo Scalino (3323mt) that you can see behind me. Three hard hours climbing from where I took this pic...
Caspoggio can be compared to a wonderful balcony overlooking the Bernina view and dominating the entire Valmalenco from its pleasant knoll. Wide grasslands and pine forests gladden this place. To those keen on skiing, this area offers 6 ski facilities, which guarantee artificial snow on about 20 km of ski slopes.
Hamlets in the municipality of Caspoggio: Albertazzi, Burri, S. Elisabetta.
Height above sea level: 1150
Distance from Milan: 145 Km
