The Cenghen fall (614 m)

The small treasure of Grigna mountain: the Cenghen fall in Abbadia Lariana Lecco.

Cascata di Cenghen – Abbadia Lariana

We are usually oriented to go away to experience new locations, but we ignore there are very beautiful places so close to us. The Grigna mountain hosts a real natural gem: the Cenghen fall.
You have to reach Abbadia Lariana, in particular its district of Linzanico. If you arrive by car you find a parking area near the village square; if you come by train, from the Abbadia railway station in few minutes you arrive to Linzanico on foot.

The itinerary begins from the small square, where you find the path close to the wash house. You arrive to destination in one hour along an easy mule-track offering you wonderful views on Lake Como, terraces of olive and fruit trees. You left behind town’s noises to embrace the sound of the nature and breathe the woods.
In 20/25 minutes you arrive to the path coming from Crebbio, and few meters after on your left you see a fountain. Take the path on you right and go on until you find a junction in proximity of a green level viewing in front of you Monte San Primo. Take the path on the right driving you to the Cenghen fall (on the left you reach the residential area of Campelli).

Along the path you find a building with a white arrow on its wall signing you to turn right, so entering into the small village of Calech, which offers you an extraordinary panoramic view on Grigna Meridionale and its Segantini Ridge. Here you find another white arrow showing you to turn left. Rise a few meters and you are on another beautiful terrace overviewing Val Monastero at the Grigna’s foot. Here there is a not signed fork, take the path on the left, ignoring the one going down to the underlying valley. Go on along the path, you are near to the Cenghen fall, in fact some signs are present now.
In few minutes you have reached your destination and you can enjoy and experience the wild nature with its rocks and the peace and calm of this place. Breathe and relax. Here you are the Cenghen falls.
