The stone walled and roofed hut is well insulated and heating is solar powered. It has a wood- and gas-fired kitchen with running water. The dormitories are equipped with mattresses and blankets in the old part of the hut; the new second floor offers the convenience of 35 modern beds.
A charming mountain pasture. In early spring luxuriant wildflowers enhance the visual impact of this already stunning location. Many flower species can be found, including the pale gentian (or gentiana alba).
