In Adamello on the sceneries of the First World War

Proposte 6-7 giorni

Hiking among the most significant sites of the 1st World War, here called White War because it was fought at altitudes sometimes exceeding 3 thousand meters on the Adamello group.

Many remains of barracks, trenches and tunnels testify the sufferings of the military troops on both sides, forced up here to experience incredible challenges; most impressive is the placement of 146 m cannon (weighting more than 6 tons) dragged by the human arms from the Camonica valley up to the Cresta Croce glacier.
