This malga is located in the plateau with the same name between Baita Monte Corno and Rifugio Granezza. Surrounded by spruce, white fir trees and beech woods, this malga has a pasture in good conditions.
Nearby there is the Granezza British Military Cemetery in memory of the events of the First World War, while the Rifugio Granezza and the Monument dedicated to the dead of the Second World War, victims of a tragic raid in 1944, can be found to the north. Two paths start a short distance from this malga, near the cemetery: towards the east, the Sentiero del Rosso Ammonitico (Red Ammonite Path) goes through the rock maze of Monte Corno (marked by the ammonite symbol drawn in red on rocks and trees); towards the west, an easy path suitable even for baby strollers, leads to Malga Granezzetta. In the wintertime, the road that joins Pian di Granezza and Asiago becomes a nordic skiing trail of the Monte Corno Cross-Country Skiing Center connected to the Asiago Cross-Country Skiing Center as well.
From the center of Lusiana, take the S.P. towards Piazza Campana and continue towards the fork for Monte Corno. Then go uphill to the left for about 4.5 km, and thus arrive at Bocchetta Granezza. Continue straight on for about 800 m and you will see the malga on the right.
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!!
