Hike to the Val di Fumo mountain hut

At the upper reaches of the Rio Chiese, the Daone valley turns off towards west and stretches into the Adamello Group. At the head of the valley, there is the Fumo valley, characterised by its high Alpine heath of utmost beauty.

In order to get to the starting point of our through the high Alpine valley, we take the little road at Daone, stretching through the valley, past the Lago di Malga Boazzo lake and the restaurant Da Pierino, until we reach the parking space at the “Bar Alta Diga”. Here, at 1,790 m a.s.l., our walk starts. In front of us, there is the impressive dam wall of the Lago di Malga Bissina lake, we proceed along the western lakeside on the promenade trail that takes us to the Malga Breguzzo. Past the mountain hut, we follow the path no. 240 to the Rif. Val di Fumo mountain hut.

You can choose whether to take the path on the left or the right of the Chiese river. The gentle, natural heath can be enjoyed on both sides. Then we comfortably proceed the way down for some km. Turquoise water, the snow-capped Adamello mountains in the background, underneath the Corno di Vigo, Caré Alto and Crozzon di Lares. This is how we reach the Malga Val di Fumo pasture and mountain hut. For the way back we take the same route.
