    Halftime - you have already mastered half of the GR20. That gives motivation for today's stage. From the Refuge de Manganu you hike across the Punta alle Porta, continue on the Bocca Soglia to the small and cozy Refuge Petra Piana.The first three kilometers you walk steadily uphill. The summit of Punta alle Porta is not directly on the GR20, but the small side trip including Kraxelei worth it in any case. The view from 2,313 meters altitude is terrific!You continue towards Bocca Soglia and enjoy the breathtaking mountain scenery. Look out for Lac du Capitello, a picturesque mountain lake in the Restonica Valley. If you have time and energy, make a detour to the lake and the neighboring Lac de Melo.The path leads you further through the rugged mountain landscape, every now and then you have to climb a bit. However, you will find help to master the way well. Arriving at the Refuge Petra Piana you can look forward to a warm dinner with a relaxing glass of wine. The small refuge offers 28 beds and enough space for tents.
