To reach Rifugio Carè Alto means to breath “authentic” mountain air.

Author’s recommendation

Don’t forget to take a picture of the small and picturesque church located just a few steps from the mountain hut. It was built during the Great War by Russian prisoners. The architecture of the minute building, in fact, shows evident traces of an “oriental” style.

From the parking area in Val Borzago (Pian della Sega 1250 m), you walk along trail 213.

After following the mule track, you reach Malga Coel di Pelugo (1440 m - cableway start).
