During this short trekking you will sleep one night in a bivouac with basic accommodation where you have to bring a sleeping bag and a mattress because you sleep on the floor. We will live a full experience in contact with the wild.
This trek runs along the most scenic ridges of the National Park with views of Ossolan peaks of Devero, Formazza and Vigezzo valleys and we will have a privileged view on many Swiss peaks of over 4000 m high. We will pass through solitary pastures, will climb a summit with a great panorama, will walk lonely paths where it is more to see chamois than humans! We will discover a stairway carved, by man, in the rock to allow the passage of the herds.
It will be an unforgettable experience!
This trekking has a duration of 2 walking days plus two days for arrival/departure and transfer.
The accommodation is in bivouac, you need to have a sleeping bag and a folding mat (rent possibility). The dinner is self-managed in bivouac where there is only a stove. The guide will take food and cook it so that you can enjoy the view and relax in the bivouac.
This trekking has a medium difficulty, but you need adaptive spirit and habit to carry a heavy backpack throughout the day.
