Margherita Hut

The ascent to the Capanna Margherita, Europe's highest mountain hut, is one of the most coveted and exciting experiences for mountain enthusiasts. From the top of the 4554-metre Punta Gnifetti, the view sweeps from the vertiginous south face of Monte Rosa over Alagna and the Val Sesia, losing itself in the Po Valley as far as the Maritime Alps. The trip to Capanna Margherita is a challenge to oneself, a test of endurance, a desire to be satisfied, a sudden emotion, a journey into one's personal history and above all an irrational and, fortunately, irrepressible adventure. You cannot control a high mountain ascent, you can only plan it, desire it and then rely on the moods of the wind, the snow, and if necessary, know how to give it up. But it can never be a hit-and-run because it is a journey that starts when you begin to desire it and never ends.

The trip to the Capanna Margherita is an ascent that reaches 4500 metres, requires physical strength and athletic preparation, and familiarity with long walks, but has no vertiginous passages, exposed climbs or difficult passages. However, given the high mountain terrain, it is recommended to be accompanied by an authorised UIAGM mountain guide.
