Adamello Haute Route

02.06.2011 by Planetmountain

The "Alta Via dell’Adamello", or Adamello High Trail No. 1, is a spectacular 70km hike through the beautiful Adamello mountain range in the Italian Alps.

"The Alta Via dell'Adamello is journey into Italy's past, via the remains and signs of the White War which, for four years, witnessed Italians and Austrians battle against each other at over 3000m altitude in unimaginable conditions during the First World War.

The path No.1 crosses the Adamello Park in the heart of the Rhaetian Alps, home to a wealth of different ecosystems, determined by the great altitude differences (from 400 to 3554 metres above sea level), the geological complexity of the area and the distinctiveness of each valley.

The Adamello Trek is circa 70km long and is split into 5/8 sections and connects numerous mountain huts along the way, starting from the Bazena close to the Crocedomini pass, via Adamello's impressive north face, and finishing at the mountains close to Edolo. The trek crosses the Adamello mountain range from south to north at an altitude of 2000 - 3000m, with numerous mountain passes above 2700m which are often covered in snow.

Although the walk is generally fairly easy, there are some short exposed and difficult sections. These have been equipped with a series of steel cables and steps, but remain delicate especially in difficult conditions (verglas, ice, snow, rain). The path peters out on the most isolated sections of the trek but the obvious red and white markers show the way.

The Adamello Trail Number 1 is suitable for medium, fit hikers with the right equipment, proper knowledge of the area and the right gear to navigate in a mountain environment."
