Poncione di Ganna

Distance: 1.5 km • Time: 1 hour e 40 minutes • Medium difficulty

The Poncione di Ganna is probably the most beautiful mountain of Varese province characterized by its pyramidal shape. You can start the trek from different starting points, in this simple and accessible itinerary the departure is from the Alpe Tedesco, where it is possible to park the car. From the parking lot the path starts in a large road that leads to a well-marked path that quickly climbs up to a sign that outlines the junction between normal and direct route. The difference is delineated by the length of the paths while the duration is similar. Both routes are marked by hiking signs along the way. From the summit you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Valganna and the surrounding Alps and thanks to the “Rosa dei Venti” located under the huge summit cross, it will be possible to recognize the surrounding hills.
