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.

Turn-by-turn directions

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).

You continue along the trail that climbs in a landscape characterised by cliffs and granite ridges, towering above rivers and numerous waterfalls.

The track, always clearly visible and well-marked, continues to gain elevation with steep bends.

You reach a small bridge where the path comes to a fork. Here you turn left, continuing to follow trail 213 towards Rif. Carè Alto.

You climb to the Malga Zucal plateau at an elevation of 1507 m. Without reaching the mountain dairy, you continue to climb along trail 213 and, after a long but gratifying walk, you reach the mountain hut.

To return, you follow the same route backwards.
