Destination

Paganella 2

Turn-by-turn directions

From Andalo, Laghet area, we go up to Prati di Gaggia by cable car and then we reach Paganella 2 by chairlift. At that point, we take the forest trail towards the chalet Bait del Germano. After taking the forest road, on the left, we continue on the trail ex 610 heading to Passo San Giacomo; we proceed through green woods and grassland, where marmots live. Once we reached Passo San Giacomo, we arrive at the chalet Bait del Germano in a short time, continuing on the trail.

On the way back we can take the same path or in alternative we can just take the forest road for the whole itinerary.
