Overview

This amazing run takes you to the shelter where Giuseppe lives overlooking the mountains - Arrivo al rifugio di Giuseppe con vista unica!

Description

The climb is not very long but it is steep and difficult, and with snow it becomes very difficult. Along the way, you pass by Piane where there is a very pretty lake and the pastures of cows. It is recommended to go early in the morning because even in the early afternoon the mountain tends to be covered with clouds (even in good weather).

La salita non è molto lunga ma ripida e faticosa, con la neve diventa difficoltosa. Lungo il percorso si passa dalle Piane dove si trova un laghetto molto grazioso e i pascoli delle mucche. Si raccomanda di salire presto al mattino perché già nel primo pomeriggio il monte rosa tende a coprirsi di nuvole (anche nelle belle giornate).
