The queen of Trentino: Cima Presanella

With an altitude of 3.558 meters, the Presanella is the highest summit included entirely in the Trentino and for this reason it is its main symbol. From the summit you have a view of a wide panorama that ranges from Adamello glacier to the neighboring Ortles and Brenta groups.

Presanella is a mountain with a thousand faces where every mountaineer can find the route that best suits his characteristics. Our program will tackle the normal route, starting from Rifugio Denza.

Its pyramid-shaped profile is unmistakable and its ascent will offer great satisfaction.
