  • Spectacular view of the snow-covered hill, you can go to the base to climb the path walking from the village because it is very close

  • It's nice to place very good view if you like walking is accessed by a road by car and then on foot not difficult but exhausted... I liked is fun at the shelter this Sun making a rich chocolate with milk and a place very good to rest if you want to make Summit

  • The first part of the rise in auto is a rather complicated route. Gravel without maintenance. At first and slowly becomes the base to begin the hike. The first stop is a part very cute with sculptures of wood and then to the shelter so. The views are extraordinary. It is advisable to do so at the end of the trip if you are not trained!
