Description

A strikingly beautiful trek up at altitude through alpine meadows and pastures, immersed in nature and wild landscapes which leads to the top of Mount Altissimo…a very panoramic summit!! Mount Altissimo makes up the northern most point of the chain of Monte Baldo, also known as Europe’s Botanical Gardens. Ever since the year 1400 chemists and herbalists walked up and down its slopes looking for all sorts of plants to use for their curative effects…but there are many other interesting features which can be found in the areas of this trek!! A cool alternative to hot summer days!


After a 45 minute long transfer, you will reach Prati di Nago at an altitude of 1560m, starting point of our day. We will then climb up the slopes of Monte Altissimo (2053m), hiking up the north face. Above the woods, in front of us the wild Val del Parol opens up and from May to July magnificent lilies, gentians and orchids accompany us. Marmots and chamois live here and it is very easy to catch a very close glimpse of them. As well as many limestone slabs covered in fossils make this area very interesting geologically. In roughly three hours of walking (430m of vertical height gain) we will reach rifugio Damiano Chiesa for lunch, on the path which runs along the ridge “Alta via del Monte Baldo”. The peak of Monte Altissimo (2070m) which can be reached in 10 minutes from the mountain hut, consists of a wide panoramic terrace overlooking Lake Garda, perfect for taking photos! Now the descent down the famous path 601, which unwinds through pine dwarf trees and rhododendrons over panoramic ridges, leads us to join up with the initial part of the ascent.
