Macugnaga is a wonderful alpine village at 1327 m at the base of east wall of Monte Rosa. The history of Macugnaga, “Pearl of Monte Rosa” began in the twelve century when ethnicity Walser, Albanian group native of Valais, occupied this pleasant basin in Anzasca Valley. This was the beginning of Walser colonization around Monte Rosa. Today the Walser tradition is still visible in the original architecture and costumes that women wear on special festivals. Titsch language is still spoken by elderly into Dorf, a small settlement of 1200 B.C. with it’s church, cemetery and the ancient secular “Tiglio” tree. Running MEHT will be an opportunity to get in touch with a piece of Alpine history.
