The first part of the excursion follows the Strada degli Alpi Bedretto. After reaching the Alp Cristallina continue to the left, following the signs in direction to the Alpine hut Cristallina. The path goes up along the Val Torta until reaching the alpine hut, one of the most renown and frequented in Switzerland. It is a nice excursion covering about 700 m height difference. The hut is a modern building, located near the Cristallina Pass at 2575 m above sea level. The excursion is possible in Summer and during Winter.
You can walk back the same way or choose the way Robièi and go there by cablecar to San Carlo.
