Route:Piora - Lago Scuro - Lucamagno Pass
Access to start point:Airolo(train) - Piotta(bus) - Piora(funicular - 13 CHF)
Access to end point:Passo Lucamagno - Disentis (bus)

From Piotta to Piora take the funicular then on the asphalt road to dam Ritom(~1850m). Our target it was Pass Lucomagno(~1915m) and we could reach it in two ways: one easier via Passo dell Uomo(2218m) and one a little bit harder but more spectacular via suspended lakes in the region. So we have passed one by one: Lago di Tom(2022 m), Lagetti al Taneda(~2250m), Lago Scurp(~2450m) then we've shortcut the trail by not going to the Cadlimo Chalet but going on loooog Cadlimo Valley. Then after a quick descent we were at the end of the Val Termine then in 20minutes at Lucamagno Pass to take the bus to Disentis.

Spectacular area, with a lot of  alpine lakes(read jeweleries) with a big potential for other trips
