Bocchetto di Sessera - Monticchio - Colma Bella - Cima del Bonom - Bassa del Campo - Artignaga - Alpe Montuccia - Bocchetto di Sessera (path 17, Oasi Zegna Map)

Return from Bonom is by way of the path for Alpe Artignaga and an unsurfaced road via Alpe Montuccia back to Bocchetto Sessera.

- The view across Valsessera and the old stone-built villages in Valle del Cervo you immediately have on approaching Monte Monticchio. And then the wonderful panorama taking in the upper Valsessera and Monte Asnas (2,039 m) awaiting those who brave the final climb to the top.
- The rhododendrons, tall daisies, yellow arnica and blue rampion bellflower that color the path, on which grassy saddles alternate with rocky sections.
- The Pera Furà (stone with a hole), a roundish “natural window” formed by eroded stone slabs. Inside it, you can sit in silence and listen to the “breathing of the mountain”, a unique sound produced by the wind penetrating the cracks. While in the biggest opening in the rocks there is what looks like the face of man, in stone.
MUST REMEMBER There is no water along the way, so stock up well at the start point, where there is also a spring. Hiking gear, including poles to assist your efforts, is recommended.
