Mount Faiè is a privileged panoramic balcony over the Maggiore, Mergozzo and Orta lakes but also over the rugged mountains of the Val Grande National Park and the peaks of the Monte Rosa massif. Mount Faiè, albeit with its modest altitude, offers a spectacle as far as the eye can see. From the small rural village located at the end of the road that goes up from the lakes we set off in a splendid beech forest all the way to the top of the mountain. An itinerary that can be enjoyed also during the hottest months of july and august as it develops mostly in the shade. During the spring months it is possible to extend the itinerary to cover also the Vercio Hermitage, a place of peace and tranquillity famous for the blooming of the rhododendrons.
