  • A magical place where at least once in your life you have to get there. Path is not too difficult if you start from campo imperatore. Mandatory equipment for hiking, water and Sun hats. Not to be missed.

  • For anyone who loves mountain is a must! The climb from the Observatory is challenging enough in the final but the views at the top of the vale, gorgeous!

  • The climb to the Summit of Western Big Horn is a must for everyone who loves the mountains. Is a rather pleasant, except the stony Summit (which can be unpleasant because of the friable rock) and scree which we cross walking the path "normal." For those who dare, there is the "direttissima", but you must equip themselves adequately because of difficulty greater than the most beaten. The journey from campo imperatore is around 3 hours, depends on the step and stops. If you have been exercising is a walk, it's worth trying: on a clear day you can see the entire coastline of Teramo and Pescara, sinking the gaze into the Adriatic Sea. There are also other very nice paths like the one to mount Eagle, but to that I will dedicate specific review. Good hike at all!
