After a 45 minute long transfer, you will reach Prati di Nago at an altitude of 1560m, starting point of our day. We will then climb up the slopes of Monte Altissimo (2053m), hiking up the north face. Above the woods, in front of us the wild Val del Parol opens up and from May to July magnificent lilies, gentians and orchids accompany us. Marmots and chamois live here and it is very easy to catch a very close glimpse of them. As well as many limestone slabs covered in fossils make this area very interesting geologically. In roughly three hours of walking (430m of vertical height gain) we will reach rifugio Damiano Chiesa for lunch, on the path which runs along the ridge “Alta via del Monte Baldo”. The peak of Monte Altissimo (2070m) which can be reached in 10 minutes from the mountain hut, consists of a wide panoramic terrace overlooking Lake Garda, perfect for taking photos! Now the descent down the famous path 601, which unwinds through pine dwarf trees and rhododendrons over panoramic ridges, leads us to join up with the initial part of the ascent.
