The ascent to the Capanna Margherita on Signal kuppe in the experience

Program:

1st day
Meeting in Alagna at 2.30 pm at the offices of Alagna.it booking center via dei Walser 6.
Equipment control and distribution of technical materials.
Ascent by cable car to Indren and ascent on foot to the Gnifetti hut where we will arrive at 5.00 pm. We will tackle the path from Indren to Gnifetti, short and not too demanding, with calm and long stops, to alleviate problems of altitude sickness, which the difference in height of over 1000 meters that takes 30 minutes by cable car, could give us.
Dinner and overnight.

2nd day
Ascent to Capanna Margherita with the first light of dawn, together in a roped party and assisted by your guide who will accompany you on a memorable journey. We’ll arrive at Capanna Margherita late afternoon. After a light lunch and well-deserved rest prepare yourself for a spectacular sunset and memorable evening in the highest refuge in Europe.

3rd day
Descent to Alagna after breakfast via Cristo delle Vette and the pyramid Vincent, 2 of the prestigious 4000’s on the massif of Mont Rosa, a short stop at refuge Gnifetti for a final drink and then the descent to Indren and cable car ride back to Alagna.
