Rifugio Curò

Valbondione | Alta Valseriana | Hiking Trails

The refuge is located in a beautiful valley next to the enchanting lake Barbellino and the emerald waters

Rifugio Curò is placed in a beautiful valley next to the enchanting lake Barbellino, from emerald waters. We recommend the hike during the five planned annual openings (June to October) of the Serio Falls, the highest in Italy, which are formed at the opening of the dam (for information www.turismovalbondione.it)

Following signs for Valbondione reach the Sports Palace (Via T. Pacati) and parked the car (940 m). From the car park turn left along the county road, at the first fork we keep to the right and continue always on the asphalt in the direction Lizzola.

 

After the first bend to the right, after about 200 meters, we take on the left via Curò; after a few hundred meters the road becomes a dirt road and into the woods with regular slope. Following the side of the valley we share and, after going through some valleys, we reach the lower station of the cable car that transports food to the shelter. From this point the dirt road becomes a mule track, we leave the forest and continue to climb. At one point, after having bent sharply to the south (1600 m) and different path curves, we cross the path CAI 305/306 (1748 m); continue to the left, cross a “plane” suddenly dug into the mountain rock Worm and reach Rifugio Curò (1915 m).
