    Cardada is a place and lookout point with restaurant (1332 m above sea level) in the Swiss canton of Ticino above the municipality Orselina at (1671 m above sea level) high mountain Cimetta, the summit is slightly northeast and where there is also a restaurant , He is also known as the local mountain of Locarno.
    On Cimetta, a chairlift and three ski lifts have been created, opening up 5.4 kilometers of runway length. They were built by Ulisse Del-Grande (father of Justa Del-Grande, CH National Team ski race). Until 1999, the ski facilities operated by Ulisse Del-Grande as owner; In the following years, a joint stock company was founded, which operates the ski lifts until today, provided that the different snow conditions allow it in winter.
    From the geological observation station on Cimetta you can see the Maggia Delta between Locarno and Ascona - the lowest point in Switzerland, as far as Monte Rosa - the highest point in Switzerland.On the south-western edge of Cardada stands a "Passerelle" designated landscape landscaped by Paolo Bürgi jetty, which leads between the treetops of the sloping forest through to the viewpoint Ponte sospeso Cardada, which offers a panoramic view of the lake, the Centovalli and part of the Maggia Valley.
    The area around Cardada includes several hiking trails that can be tackled in different ways. From Cardada and Cimetta mountain hiking trails lead to the Cima della Trosa (1869 m above sea level) and to the Madone (2039 m above sea level). Cardada is located between the Maggia Valley and the Verzasca Valley. Cardada (or Cimmetta) is therefore the ideal starting point for hikes in both valleys: to Avegno in the Maggiatal and to Mergoscia in the Verzasca Valley.

    If you are already here then also on the platform. The access road is currently being expanded (wheelchair accessible) and the view is awesome. The platform is not "transparent" from below, i.e. no grating or glass and can therefore also be walked on by less experienced people.
