9th stage: between ibex, deer and roe deer At the Andolla refuge you can often see ibex in the evening hours. To descend to Cheggio you can either use the normal road or one that leads to Alpe Camasco (restored in 2013), where you enter the deer area, the Antrona Valley Park. In Campalamano there is a Tibetan bridge and, if you continue the hike, you will come across the chapel of Piana Ronchelli. We then continue along the characteristic Cavallisee. Cheggio is a small settlement built around a small oratory dedicated to St. Bernard. Later you descend over the alpine pastures from Campo to Antrona.
