BRIOSCHI HUT ON GRIGNONE PEAK – Day Hike – Level VERY STRENUOUS

BRIOSCHI HUT ON GRIGNONE PEAK – Day Hike – Level VERY STRENUOUS 2560 1707 TrekMI

This is literally the highest you can get on the mountains surrounding Lake Como! Located at an altitude of 2.410m (7,900 ft) the mountain hut is dedicated to the mountaineer Luigi Brioschi and rises on top of the peak locally known as Grignone Mountain. Since 1926 the Brioschi Hut hosts hikers and mountaineers, delighting them with warm traditional dishes. Its enviable position on top of one of the best known mountains in the Alps makes it a symbol and a very popular destination for all mountain lovers. From here, on a clear day, you can see almost everything, from nearer Lake Como to the farthest peaks of Monte Rosa, Monviso and the Swiss Alps. The hike is long and requires a good amount of energy. It is suited for experienced hikers who are used to covering significant differences in height (more than 1.500m). No need to say how rewarding this itinerary is!
