West side Sunset – from Piano Fiera we start walking into beech and poplar tree wood. lichens make the stones typically colorful and in autumn and winter also moss reveals the best green ever. This area is full of mounts – Monte Intraleo (1560) , Monte Gallo, Monte Nespole (1725), Monte Leporeto, Monte Capre, Monte Rosso for its red soil and Monte de Fiori from where to admire the real sunset enlighting the Etrna valley.
The route may proceed towards Monte Lepre (1559) up to Monte scavo (1785). Along this way we can enjoy the emotional experience to cross 1832 lava, which looks like a lunar landscape. Then in Monte Scavo we have rest at a shelter house and come back from the altomontana way which is an easy, but long way, along the best side of Mount Etna.
