Description

After winding your way up the Anzasca Valley, you will find yourselves at the foot of Mount Rosa in the village Macugnaga, home of the Walser people. The Walsers are a population of German descent  who were the first to colonise this area of the Alps.

 

Dominated by the imposing East face of Mount Rosa (the only “Himalayan” mountain face in the Alps), Macugnaga represents the heart of the Walser tradition through local costume, dialect and the rustic wooden houses which can be seen when exploring the characteristic old town, “Dorf”. The old town is a collection of alpine houses and stables built around the ancient church and the centuries-old “Lime Tree” which is still a meeting point for people today.

 

To really enjoy the magnificent panorama across Mount Rosa you can use the Monte Moro cable car or the Belvedere Chairlift which takes you within a short walk of the Belvedere Glacier, the only moving glacier in the Alps.
