Bivacco Molteni Valsecchi

Hiking Highlight

Recommended by Betty


  • Betty

    Idyllically situated on a large rock at 2510 m above sea level, this bivouac offers a fantastic view over the Valle del Ferro. It is not far away or lies on the wonderful mountain trail Sentiero Roma and offers protection against bad weather, as well as overnight camp for hikers who are too full of the hut.

    The bivouac is named after the two climbers Mario Molteni and Giuseppe Valsecchi, who were surprised by the weather in 1937 after the first ascent of the northeast face of the Pizzo Badile and have not made it back because of exhaustion. Fortunately, this rarely happens today and the small emergency camps on the mountains are often not used as emergency accommodation but rather as an integral part of the tours.
