Val Nera - Val di Campo - Vedretta Glacier Paradisin
From the parking lot P8 on the road leading up to Forcola pass in a few minutes we reach the hut “Malga del Vago”, from here the trail continues and bifurcates.
It gets to the right following the signs for the passage of the Black Valley and gradually begins to rise.
After less than an hour you reach the fork to the Black Valley waterfalls, with a quick descent of a few tens of meters you can go and see them.
Going back to our trail the trip continues, we get over the tree line and we take the Valley on the right, Val di Campo, beautiful during the rhododendrons flowering weeks, from late June to early July.
Nosing up on the left ,with some easy steps to overcome some rocks , we arrite to large plateau where there are the two lakes of Valletta and from where one can see the sharp peaks of Paradisino and Corno di Campo.
We get easily to the Black Valley Pass , slightly less than 2700 m. We are on the border with Switzerland and we go to the right for the last uphill stretch, almost all of stones, to reach first the Ghiacciao di Campo and after another stretch , finally to the Glacier Paradisino, we are about 3000 m.
It is interesting to discover the signs of the inexorable retreat of these glaciers , very sensitive to the global warming and subject of scientific studies , as evidenced by the meteorological data detection station and the measurement instruments placed on the tongue of the glacier.
It is 'possible to descend the glacier thanks to the debris that have concealed it, and make the path safe enough.
Beyond the glacier continues steep the descent to the valley of lakes, which we see now from another angle, and joins the trail below the hill in Val di Campo.
The hike is challenging for different types of terrain over which in addition to 1000 m in altitude and a path is not always marked.
