Distance : 8 km / Duration : 4h round trip / Difference in altitude : 600m
Walk : Semi-shaded at the start, then sunny at the summit at 1345m, for experienced hikers.
Itinerary : Head towards Sainte Marie Siché and continue towards Quasquara until you reach the place called “Sarra Topu”, at the top of the village. You can park at the level of the signs of the “Communauté de Communes”. Then follow the orange markings.
Description : From the beginning, the difference in level is felt and it continues for a good hour of walking! After a few minutes, you cross two small streams, before emerging from the undergrowth and climbing up to a complete change of scenery: a wonderful panorama of the peaks opposite and the valley. At a crossroads with an arrow and orange markings, turn left slightly downhill. The fork in the road leading to the Punta Urghjavari summit is barely visible, indicated by a cairn. From there, there is a twenty minute climb off the markers to the summit with its statue of the Virgin Mary, its two crosses… and the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Ajaccio, the bay of Coti Chiavari and the surrounding villages (Campo, Frasseto, Quasquara…)
The descent (rather sportive) follows the same itinerary.
