Map of Monarto South for 28 return Wcardada.ch In high summer, when sweltering Locarno (210m) gets too much, it’s easy to escape into the cool, wooded hills above. Opposite the top station of the Madonna del Sasso funicular in Orselina (395m) is the base station of a futuristic cable car that rises on an ear-poppingly steep course to the plateau of Cardada (1350m), set amid fragrant pine woods. A short stroll left from the top station brings you to the Observation Platform, a gracefully designed catwalk suspended off a huge A-frame; a stupendous view takes in Ascona, the lake and the mountains. There are a couple of simple restaurants up here and some easy strolls in the pine forest many of them wheelchair accessible. Turn right from the top station, and wander for ten minutes or so through the woods to a spectacular chairlift that whisks you even higher, up to the flower-strewn meadows of Cimetta (1672m), where there’s a restaurantguesthouse with a terrace view that you won’t forget in a hurry. This is a popular hang-gliderstake-off point, too. If you’re approaching from Locarno, ask at the base-station of the Madonna del Sasso funicular for a ticket to the top; this discounts the fare and includes half-price car parking in Locarno as well.
