The path takes you into the heart of the Verghio forest, which will become your base for the next few days. En route, you will have opportunities to bathe in some natural rock pools.
Lake of Ninu and wild horses
Today you will do a very nice walk to reach the lake of Ninu. You will have an opportunity to see some wild horses around the lake.
The walk is a bit technical at the end but it is worth it! You will then go back to Verghio by the same path.
Shepherd huts of Colga
A nice shady walk that starts gently on the GR20 path. You will reach a pretty secret path which will bring you to abandonned shepherd huts of Colga. Then you will descend to reach the road where the “donkeyman” will wait for you.
