Comment (Automatic translation in english)

From the Lucendro Dam, follow the road that runs along the homonymous lake until the entrance to the path that leads to the Cascina della Gana. Continue up the path and go around the East Pizzo dell'Uomo until you reach the first two lakes, those of Valletta. In a short time you will then arrive at the Passo d'Orsirora from where you continue north until you reach the ridge. Then remaining more or less at the same altitude you continue until you reach the summit. For the return, given the amount of snow present in the gully, we preferred not to go directly to the lakes of Orsirora but to retrace our steps to the path just below the pass. From there, continue comfortably along the path to the lake to the east and then up to Lake Orsino. Above this last lake there is another much smaller one, reachable by the high path. The road then continues downhill towards the Cascina di Giacobbe and finally towards the Lucendro Dam. Regarding the water, along the whole tour there are many rivers and ponds. Finally, there is also a bathtub with tap just under the Lucendro Dam.
