This wonderful tour leading to the picturesque Capanna Alzasca (1734 m) could be called the "Lakes Tour".
The path to the hut is in good condition, though quite steep.
You pass numerous alps dotted with typical Vallemaggia rustici (stone houses).
Once you reach the hut, Lake Alzasca (1855 m), a destination for many fishermen, is not far.
The Bocchetta di Cansgéi (2036 m) offers spectacular views of the lake and Campo valley.
In the distance you can also make out the flank of the Pizzo Bombögn. A smooth path leads from the pass up to 2135 m; the trail then begins the steep descent with some challenging sections, but with a view of Lake Sascola, a pearl set in rock. The lake is crystal clear and is worth a visit for a short but refreshing dip.
There follows a fairly technical path to Rotonda (1268 m) then Tacitt (668 m).
The path then brings you back to Cevio via Rovana.
