I have checked the weather. It's warmer and better in the South. And Friday it will clear in the South from mid-day on. So here is the plan:
We will do 2 days hike but those of you who can only do 1 day can join us on the second day.
Day 1, Friday: leaving Luzern by train on 07:18 h, arriving in Locarno at 09:57 h.
Hiking Orselina up to Cimetta cottage and than to Cardada (approx.. 4 h hike and 1500 m of altitude) from Cardada we can take the cable car down or if there is energy left we hike down. Staying at a Pension overnight: CHF 70.—
Day 2, Saturday: the 1 day hikers should take the train at Lucerne on 07:18 h arriving in Locarno at 10:13 h. We will meet you at the train station. From there we take a bus to Lavertezzo. We hike from Lavertezzo to Sonogno in the Verzasca Valley, one of the most beautiful scenic hiks. Approx.. 4 h and 700 m altitude). We will have Pizza at a Grottino and than travel back to Luzern by bus and train, leaving at 18:32 (earlier returns are possible), arriving at 22:41 h (latest)
Those who will join, please contact me by phone today[masked] that we can arrange the details. Specially those who will stay overnight. I have made a pre-reservation at the hostel and need to confirm tonight.
