Arriving at the Rifugio Altissimo Damiano Chiesa you’d think you were in Norway, with Lake Garda 2000 m below winding between the mountains like a northern fjord, blue, narrow and deep. These are the secrets of this refuge on the Monte Baldo massif, which in summer (and very often in winter, too) is one of the most well-loved and popular in southern Trentino. The rifugio has five 6-bed rooms and the bivouac for 10 people. Opening Open every day until Sunday 4th October. From the following week Rifugio Altissimo opens only on good weather weekends Before the excursion it is advisable to verify the actual opening of Rifugio Altissimo by contacting the manager. Walks Starting from Nago, going up the mountain, you will find memories of the first World War. But also starting from San Giacomo, near Malga Campo, you can see important rural architecture sites used for wild  pastoral activities. You can also start from Rifugio Graziani, along the old military way (number 633) used during the war, reaching the Rifugio in approximately one hour and a half. Going along path number 651, in 5 hours you reach the Rifugio Telegrafo, on the top of the mountains looking at Garda lake. In winter, a lot of ski-alpinists or people with snowshoes (ciaspole) arrive at Rifugio Altissimo, coming from San Giacomo along path number 622.
