Rifugio Quintino Sella al Lago Grande di Viso

Please log in or register to like posts.

The Quintino Sella Refuge is situated between Great Lake of Viso (Lake Grande di Viso) and Lake Costagrande (Lago Costagrande), in a suggestively beautiful position at the foot of Monviso . Serving as a convenient point of departure for climbing the Normal Route (through the Sagnette Pass – Passo delle Sagnette) and the Eastern Crest (from the nearby Viso Col – Colle di Viso); as a practical stop over on the very manageable round trip of Monviso (Giro del Viso); and as the destination of many pleasant walks, the Sella Refuge is one of the oldest and most frequented structures in these Alps. It is likely you will meet walkers and climbers of many different nationalities on the footpaths, and with some luck even come across the splendid examples of local fauna (Ibex, Chamois, Marmot and Lanza’s Alpine Salamander, a species endemic to the Monviso Massif).
