We will resume the path this time in the direction of the April 2017 lava flow.
We will take a few steps on these lava rocks to better understand the shape and the elements. We begin our descent.
First we will stop at ponoramic point to admire the vastness of the Valle del Bove, then continuing we will see a sinking crater (pit crater), La Cisternazza, and to close our tour we will pass by the east side of Monte Escrivà, crossing a wide area full of volcanic bombs.

We used to start from Rifugio Citelli (Mountain shelter) at 1740 mt , visit the cave of Serracozzo at 1850 mt with our helmets and lamps, and reach 2200 mt, Serracozzo's ridge: a beautiful panoramic point where you can admire the whole wide Valle del Bove (the big valley) and the north-eastern flank of Etna, with its smoking summit craters. After the lunch break, we'll continue our tour toward Monte Frumento delle Concazze (the biggest lateral off crater) and after the last up hill, we'll reach the summit of mount, totally covered by several kinds of lava bombs and then starting downhill to close our round path.
