Would you have ever thought that there is an observation point above Locarno from which the lowest point (Lake Maggiore) and the highest point (Punta Dufour in the Monte Rosa massif) in Switzerland can be seen simultaneously?
The breathtaking view enjoyed from Cimetta is surely the most striking aspect of this beautiful mountain, so much so that it is known as "the pearl of Lake Maggiore." The take-off flight near the arrival of the chairlift has an altitude difference of more than 1,000 meters and offers spectacular views. To the east the view flows along the Magadino plain until it reaches Bellinzona. To the west the view sweeps over some of the most famous peaks in the Swiss Alps such as Dufour. To the south, beyond the mountains crowning Lake Maggiore, on a clear day it is possible to make out in the distance the Ligurian Appenines, located close to Genoa.
