So today it's up to Monte Baldo!Even the journey from Tignale to Malcesine is a dream! At half past four in the morning we have the Gardesana Occidentale to ourselves. A summer day on Lake Garda wakes up! ☀️👍It starts shortly before 6:00 a.m. 🥾🥾🥾🥾This is highly recommended, as you have to climb over 1700m on a distance of almost 12 km, and the upper quarter of the path is unwooded! ☀️☀️☀️ Above all, you have to think about the afternoon when the thermometer shows 34 degrees in the shade and there are still many "kilometers of sun" to cover!Unfortunately, the way there leads us almost to the middle station of the cable car over tarred roads through the residential area of Malcesine stretching on the slope.Via farm roads we finally reach hiking trail no. 10 which stretches steeply upwards on a narrow path in serpentines to the tree line.We don't meet any hikers until shortly before the summit, but this changes suddenly the closer we get to the summit and the mountain station of the cable car 🚠.It is impressive to watch the paragliders take off and fly from the summit region.For the descent we choose the absolutely recommendable Ventrarroute from Tratto Spino to Malcesine.It is a wonderful mountain path with sections partially secured by ropes, and above all a botanical paradise!(upper quarter of the way back)From there it goes steeply downhill for many kilometers on the farm roads of the alpine pastures. - absolutely exhausting and almost only in full sun 🌞, then further through high coniferous forest.It feels like an eternity until you finally reach the middle station.From here there is still a steep section on a difficult path to conquer.The last approx. 3 km is a huge challenge, due to rough, rough scree combined with the gradient and the heat. 😰😥Conclusion: great hike, absolutely worthwhile, gigantic views that make up for the effort of the ascent.Physically demanding!Not recommended for untrained hikers!
