Col del Lampo
This malga extends along the south-west slope of Col del Lampo. Its pastures, positioned around the peak of Monte Montagna Nuova, are characterized by roundish mountain ranges and are surrounded by broadleaf plants that often provide shade to livestock at pasture.
The malga may be reached following different uphill paths, crossing the pastures from the nearby Val Biancoia, from Galgi locality or Puffele locality. From here you can enjoy a magnificent view that overlooks the Lusiana Conco territory and the plain below.
In the nearby area there is the Anello dei Tre Confini, a path almost 20 km long on a dirt trail that leads you to a tour of the south-east Plateau area, on the edge that overlooks the Veneto plain and the Canale di Brenta, and that may be explored even partially.
From Fontanelle di Lusiana Conco loc., go on for 5.7 km to Galgi di Lusiana Conco loc. At the fork for Biancoia loc., take the right and continue for about 700 m. At the fork turn left, leave the picnic area on the right and continue for about 550 m. Once you arrive at the fork for Malga Biancoia, continue on the left for 1.3 km to the Vasca del Termine Rotto. Again, keep to the left and continue for about 2 km until you arrive at the malga.
Do you want to have the best experience in the malga?
When you arrive at the malga, you’re entering the “home” of the malga operator population and their livestock: It’s a welcoming environment, rich with fascination, everything is to be discovered but also respected. Here are our recommendations for you!
The malga operator lifestyle is characterized by hardwork that starts before dawn and continues even after sundown. For example…Did you know that there two times set apart for milking? One before breakfast and another in the late afternoon.
Also, feel free to ask information but avoid going into work areas inaccessible to the public and be discrete: speaking too loudly may scare the livestock and disturb whomever is enjoying the peace of the mountain.
They are passive and docile animals but their size could put you in uncomfortable situations…or somewhat inappropriate behaviors could frighten them and provoke dangerous and unusual reactions.
It’s enough to maintain an adequate distance, avoid taking pictures from too close up, touching them, bothering them or looking them directly in the eye.
If you are with your dog, remember to keep it on a leash and under control.
When you find yourself near some cows, it’s better to avoid sudden movements, walk slowly and without getting anxious. And, if they were to get too close, distance yourself calmly and without turning your back to them!
They watch over the livestock and often offer a warm welcome to guests. Don’t worry: They are not dangerous. Treat them with respect and you will become good friends. If you are on a bike, slow down to avoid mean falls caused by demonstrations of affection a little too… overwhelming!
Those who follow the itineraries and visit the malgas know well how wonderful nature is, with its breathtaking landscapes. This is the reason why it is important not to pollute it with waste that can be taken home and properly recycled or disposed of.
The herdsmen of the plateau and the animals that live there are very fond of tourists who enjoy the wonderful days with walks, fresh air and relaxation… respecting the woods and pastures!!
