Rifugio Giümèla

Renovation work on the "dra piota" farmhouse on the Giümèla alp at msm 1862 began in 2009 and was completed in 2011.

The refuge, unguarded, has 8 beds and is always open (the door is opened by turning the handle, without key).

Reservations are required on 091 862 11 74, by e-mail ([email protected]) or at www.patriziatobiasca.ch/rifugi, Monday to Friday during office hours.

To reach this alp you start from Mount Biborgh (Val Pontirone) msm 1301 and follow the official hiking trail, marked white-red, which leads to Pass Giümela, passing by Mount Prato Dentro and the Lesgiüna alp (loaded with goats).

You reach the farmhouse on foot in about two hours.

The peculiarity of this farmstead, used by the alpine people until about 1990, is the existence of a natural stone that gives the name to the farmstead and acts as a floor inside it.
