Ring Walk to Mount Bettone and the iconic Fremo Cucuná – Maira Valley

An easy walk around Elva’s hills with some astonishing views of the valley and the iconic Fremo Cucuná – in dialect “a squatting woman” – an overhanging slab of rock over a 1,000+ m drop.

Couldn’t help to think of the Lion King when I saw it. This walk is approachable by the whole family as it is not particularly demanding and the path is very well marked (at times even on road).
