Sunsets from the top seat, stargazing from your own observatory and often in complete solitude. An overnight in a bivouac has a lot to offer. In the alpine huts, there is often a lot going on and you search vainly for recreation. Instead of getting a meal served on a hut, in the bivouac you have to cook yourself but that makes the experience even more so wonderful. A gas cooker, a pot, water, noodles, é voila, a five star dinner for hikers. Silence... all you might here is a little creek or a bird in the wind. You will sleep just well after a long hiking day and the next morning will be fresh and beautiful.
Bivouacs are emergency shelters, built to provide safety, when mountaineers are exhausted or surprised by bad weather or simply can't make it back into the valley before the night breaks in. These days bivouacs are often a fixed point of planned tours. No wonder, with all the wild romance you can experience here. These bivouacs under an elevation level of 2.600 meter are just perfect to spend a night away from the known comfort but still have the safety of four walls and a roof.
