Complete Rio Laghetto
The Rio Laghetto rivulet which flows into the Sesia River near our basecamp is a torrent with a medium difficulty level, between the Sorba and the Artogna torrents. We have divided it into two sections to enable everyone to make the descent, by reducing permanence in the gorge and attenuating the difficulty. It features waterfalls, slides, passing through a syphon, all of which can be done by rope.
This route starts relatively close to our basecamp, a 30 minute walk along a mountain path which dominates the island where Eddyline is situated.
It starts with an awe-inspiring abseil opposite a 70 metre waterfall, which enables us to reach the bottom of the torrent gorge from the path. The route ends very near our basecamp.
This activity is carried out during the whole week, from Monday to Sunday.
This is the full length section of this torrent. Actually, there is a further section upstream with a 70 metre waterfall! Just like the Classic excursion, this one features waterfalls and slides but however requires greater physical and technical abilities. The entry point is reached by the same path used for the Classic route; however we carry on walking for a further 10 minutes. We reach a small clearing with a table and benches built of stone by the old owners of the Campertogno Castle (a tower-like ancient mansion) which can be glimpsed from the path. From here, we abseil into the gorge right under the basin created by the 70 metre waterfall. Unspoilt nature! Technical excursion. Medium/high level of difficulty. Suitable as at least second outing or for those with previous experience.
From June to September (activity start-up and closure may be influenced by levels of seasonal river depths).
This is a group activity, formed by a minimum of 3 people. Suitable for those with previous experience.
Approximately 7 hours to 7 and half hours, including travel from and to the basecamp, kitting-up and descent techniques and river safety briefing. Excursion duration may vary on the basis of the number of participants in the group, their speed along the route and in the gorge, water levels and weather conditions.
