Lakes and clouds: Our attempt on Punte alle Porte
Posted by nonsavant on 26 October 2018
Our last day and a steep hike up past two lakes was planned. After thirty minutes of winding road up through the Restonica valley, we arrive at a large car park and the dairy shop. The shop is still open, but there’s no fee for the car park out of season.

The Calanches de Piana is an area with many crisscrossing walks, where the highlight is the amazing weathered red rock. The scenery was once again in stark contrast to the other walks we did.
L’Arche de Corte

This turned into a very long walk of over 20 km, including a steep ascent through stunning rock formations, soft paths through peaceful, deserted woodland and a deep river gorge.

Our first walk on Corsica and not too challenging, but nonetheless finishing with some exciting but safe scrambling to reach the summit.
