Tibetan Bridge Carasc
You can reach the Tibetan Bridge only on foot.
It’s possible to start the hike either from Monte Carasso or Sementina. Both ways take around 2h.
Alternatively, you can take the cable car from Monte Carasso to Curzutt (first stop). From Curzutt you can reach the Tibetan bridge by walk in 45/60 min (hiking shoes are hardly recommended!).
For further information about the cable car Monte Carasso - Mornera please visit www.mornera.ch. We suggest to book the ascent with the cable car in advance.
Unfortunately, the booking of the descent is not possible. In case of high affluence, there is the possibility to take a shuttle bus back to Monte Carasso. The shuttle bus departs from “Al Pairolo” which is reachable from Curzutt with an easy 5/10 minutes walk. The walk starts right next to the cable car station in Curzutt. The cable car ticket is also valid for the shuttle bus service.
The shuttle bus service is available every day and the morning ride is bookable on www.mornera.ch.
In the morning, the shuttle bus goes uphill, from 9.45 am until 12.45 pm (every 45 minutes) from Monte Carasso (Infopoint / former town hall) to San Defendente. From San Defendente to the Tibetan Bridge Carasc there is a 30/35 hike.
Then, in the afternoon, it heads downhill from Pairolo to Monte Carasso (departure of the cable car) between 2:45 and 6:15 pm (every 30 minutes).
The shuttle bus will also be running on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and bank holidays uphill from Monte Carasso (Infopoint / former town hall) to Pairolo at 10.30 am, 11.00 am, 11.30 am and 12.00 pm.
Parking and public transports
The access to the hill street of Monte Carasso and Sementina is restricted to the residents and is only issue by the local police.
Since the parking spots are limited in the area, we suggest to reach the Infopoint in Monte Carasso using public transports.
Currently, it is still possible to use the free parking located in “Er Carà di Sa” in Monte Carasso.
We highly recommend to use the public car parking located at “Via tatti” in Bellinzona and reach the cable car station using the public bus (Linea 2) direction Monte Carasso. The bus stops are “Urènn/Funivia” or “Cunvént”. If you chose this solution, in only a 5/10 minutes walk you will be at the cable car station “Monte Carasso – Mornera”. To reach the tibetan bridge from Sementina – direction San Defendente - the bus stop is “Via Locarno” in Sementina.
For those who arrive with the train at the FFS train station in Bellinzona, the bus lines to take are Linea 2 or Linea 311. The bus stops are “Urènn/Funivia” or “Cunvént”. Then in only a 5/10 minutes walk you are at the cable car station “Monte Carasso – Mornera.
You can purchase your tickets for the cable car at the ticket machines at the cable car station, or at the Infopoint (former town hall) during opening hours.
