Berlinghera Pick 1930 m // 6.632 ft high is the last pick in the north-west side of Lake Como. it has a caratheristic shape of pyramid, It overlooks Valtellina, and Valchiavenna valleys, the norther valleys of Lombardia region. it is sourrounded by other highest mountains such as Legnone - the highest pick around Lake Como 2609 m //8.560 ft high - or Sasso Canale 2411 m // 7.910 ft high that is on back of Berlinghera.
