It will overelm you. will It will be there  walking  inside its secret You will fill civilization miles away from you.

In compagnia di un geologo e guida ambientale-escursionistica del team VolcanoTrek si inizierà il percorso su Etna Sud con la risalita del crinale della Schiena dell’Asino. Arrivati alla sua sommità si aprirà davanti a noi uno scenario magnifico, la Valle del Bove. Una enorme depressione calderica (7x5Km) originatasi dal collasso di antichi vulcani, le cui pareti raggiungono in alcuni punti i 1000m di altezza. Sulla sinistra i crateri sommitali, ed i coni di scorie delle eruzioni 2001 e 2002, sino alla visione della città di Taormina e delle coste calabre. Sotto di noi un mare nero di lava solidificata, emessa durante l’eruzione 1991-93 e che ha ricoperto la vasta area pianeggiante del “Piano del Trifoglietto”. Con una ripida discesa scenderemo verso il fondo di questo catino naturale, per poi camminare al suo interno costeggiandone le pareti e dirigendoci verso valle. Si incontreranno lave dalle più disparate morfologie (a corda, piane, a budella, tumuli ect.) e dall’enorme spessore. Dopo un breve pranzo, si continuerà il percorso sulle lave sino ad incontrare un sentiero che attraversando un bosco di faggi, ci porterà  nuovamente sul un crinale e da lì scenderemo sino ad una delle poche sorgenti d'acqua presenti sul vulcano. Non manca, se richiesto, la possibilità di visita ad una delle tante grotte di scorrimento lavico (oltre 200) dell'Etna.
