    In three stages, the Sentiero Cristallina leads you from Bignasco in the Valle Maggia to Airolo in the Val Bedretto. On the way you pass steep mountain slopes, a waterfall, crystalline rocks, alpine lakes, idyllic Alps and remote hamlets. The milestones are S. Carlo (Val Bavona) and Capanna Cristallina.It starts in the typical Ticino mountain village Bignasco. From here you follow the trail that meanders through the stony, deeply cut Val Bavona. You pass the twelve small hamlets of the valley. A steep climb will take you past the Basodino Hut up to dammed and natural mountain lakes. On switchbacks, you will hike past lush mountain meadows and scree slopes to the Cristallina hut, from where you have an impressive view of the Basodino glacier. Afterwards you will descend from the stony mountain slopes and wander over lovely alps and through quiet forests. Via the high-level path of the Val Bedretto, which runs through high moorland landscapes and offers beautiful views of the Gotthard massif, you continue to Airolo, the destination of the tour.
