Trek to Monte Creino and Castil (5 hrs walk, no gaps)
After the breakfast you will meet the guide who will explain you how to manage your new friend, you will help to prepare the donkeys and you will depart for an easy walk to reach Mount Creino. Here you will see the Monte Creino trenches built by the Austro-Hungarian army from as early as 1914, some of the trenches are still in excellent condition today. Mount Creino was a place that enjoyed relative peace. The troops that passed through treated their time here as an opportunity to rest. That said, the area played the important role of viewpoint and logistical hub.
You will proceed then to a panoramic point where you will enjoy a breathtaking view on the Garda lake and the surrounding mountains. After a photo stop continue to Castil to see the ruins of the 13th century castle and then return to Malga Zanga.
Free time for relax, dinner and overnight in Malga Zanga.
