How to get there
To get to Bodone by car from Alto Lario: take the SS340 Regina state road to Gravedona ed Uniti, turn right on the SP4 Provincial road in the direction of Peglio, Livo and Dosso del Liro (if coming from Dongo, turn left). Continue for 2.5 kms until you arrive at the crossroads, turn right following the signs for Peglio. Pass through Peglio and at the end of the town turn left immediately after the Oratory of the Madonna di Gorghiglio, following a small paved road in the direction of the Agriturismo Zertin. Continue until you reach the huts of Bodone (1113 m) where you will find a parking area. Please note: to get to Bodone by car you will need a daily access ticket (€ 1.00), which can be purchased at an automatic ticket machine in Peglio. Make sure to clearly display the ticket on the dashboard of your car. The road has many sharp bends, but it is paved.
A pleasant and peaceful walk, also suitable for families, with a beautiful view of Lake Como and the surrounding mountains. Monte La Motta (1515 m a.s.l.) is usually by-passed during the climb to Monte Durìa, but it can be considered as the final destination of a simple excursion.
At the entrance to the parking area, take the marked path on the left that goes up the steep slope to Alpe Motta (1406 m), which has a wooden cross on its summit. Follow the wide grassy ridge leading to the foresummit and then to the summit of Monte la Motta, here you will find another wooden cross with a stone altar, where you can admire a splendid view of the lake.
Go back via the same route you came up on.
There are no refreshment points or refuges along the path leading to the summit. There is a restaurant and accommodation before Bodone.
