The area is north exposed … Read more

This three days Gran Paradiso National Park hiking is been designed so that we could sleep in shelters only: that is why we consider it as the Gran Paradiso easy trek. In sleeping in shelters only we had the “luxury” to have our bed waiting for us and we didn’t need to bring our food from the flat land.
