The Monte Tamaro–Monte Lema crossing is one of the most attractive hikes in Switzerland. 

You can enjoy a spectacular panorama of the whole of Ticino. The view ranges from the Magadino plain and the Bellinzona region across Locarno and Lago Maggiore to the city of Lugano and its lake. The mightiest peaks of the Alps such as Monte Rosa and the Matterhorn loom on the horizon.
