Overview

Sentiero 211 (CAI Bergamo site) is a well-marked and popular trail that reaches the popular Rifugio Laghi Gemelli from the north. In June, we approached from the south starting near Roncobello (see A Hike from Baite di Mezzeno to Rifugio Laghi Gemelli). This time around, the weather was better and the Rifugio was hopping. We still could easily find space for a nice lunch there. (Try the Polenta Pasticciata.)
