Climb Gran Paradiso – Early September 2019
September 1 - September 3
The Gran Paradiso (4061m) is the highest mountain entirely within Italy and a constant snowy companion on the southern skyline from the Mont Blanc Massif. Lying in the beautiful Paradiso National Park this is a delightful high mountain area, set above the Italian Val d’Aosta and enjoying a fine southern alpine climate.
In late summer, there are already some light hints of autumn in the mountains and a slightly more relaxed atmosphere for the pleasant walk up to the hospitable & lively Italian mountain hut from where the summit climb begins…
