Rifugio Casarota Livio Ciola

Hiking with chamois and eagles as travel companions

One hour’s walk away from Fricca Pass, with splendid panoramic view over Valsugana and the Lavarone Plateau. Ideal resting point along the ascent to Becco di Filadonna (2.150 m), to split into two days the 1.050 climb. Offers genuine cuisine with typical dishes and chestnut-based menu in Autumn.

Built in 1959 from a renewed structure, it was restored in 1981 and inaugurated in 1982. Ideal base for countless excursions: both for the ascent to Becco di Filadonna, the crossing of the peaks until Monte Cornetto in Folgaria. Interesting is the path that that leads to Malga Palazzo of the Trapp Counts.

A patch of heaven where you can enjoy nature and observe chamois run on the steep rocks and eagles twirling in the deep blue sky.
