Walk discovering a taste of the malga
The tradition of alpine summer-farming and the alpine rural culture
The walk starts at Fontanón car-park, in the Cércen Valley, and follows the forest track leading to the Lower Malga Cércen (sign-post CAI-SAT path no. 109). (The malghe are high-altitude summer farms where dairy cattle graze in the summer). During the summer months, a shuttle-bus operates between Rabbi Fonti and the malga. From there, you follow the forest track leading to the Lower Malga Villar and then take the path across the pasture to the malghe Fassa and Upper Monte Sole. Here, thanks to the ability and kindliness of the cheese-maker, you may watch the various phases of milk-processing and taste a summer farm’s authentic products. Return along the ancient mule-path that will take you back down into the valley, near the Fontanón car-park.
