Monte Generoso is the highest mountain in Val d’Intelvi, a valley that stretches from the italian little village of Argegno – located on the western branch of Lake Como – in direction of Switzerland. A peak overlooking Lake Lugano and that offers spectacular views over the surrounding valleys and mountains. Reaching Generoso Peak means crossing the border between Italy and Switzerland on foot. Just a few metres lower than the peak we find the highest station of the old fashion funicular that reaches Mount Generoso from Lake Lugano. Next to it the imposing structure of the “Stone Flower” restaurant stands magestically . Our itinerary developes on well-marked trails but sometimes narrow and exposed. Partecipants need to be confident on their feet.
