A modern cable car in Orselina allows you to reach Cardada (1340 m.a.s.l.) in just a few minutes and from there the chairlift takes you up to Cimetta (1670 m.a.s.l.). Here you can visit a panoramic viewpoint right above Locarno from where you can see the lowest point (Lago Maggiore) and the highest point of Switzerland (Dufour peak in Monte Rosa).
This oasis of peace and nature offers a spectacular 360 degree panorama view on Lake Maggiore and the surrounding valleys as well as being a starting point for numerous walks ideal for people of all ages. Further you can enjoy typical local dishes in one of the five restaurants and mountain huts.
