Author’s recommendation

Famous route along the slopes of the Presanella mountain. The route, even if  easy and popular,  requires a good physical training.
People are required to bring their own drinks: there are not refreshment points for long stretches of the itinerary. Considering the lenght of the route, we suggest to leave early in the morning.

Partenza da Cabinovia 5 Laghi Arrivo Madonna di Campiglio. Un giro stupendo e i laghi sono fantastici. Ci sono delle belle salite brevi ma intense delle discese belle strong ...Da tenere in considerazione che l’unico punto dove si può bere dell’acqua sono i rifugi .... durante tutto il percorso non si trovano punti potabili. Quindi è bene partire con un quantitativo adeguato per affrontare tutta la giornata di cammino
