Capanna Cristallina CAS 2575 m

Newly built, large SAC mountain guesthouse on the much-frequented passage from Val Bavona to Val Bedretto. Elongated, bright, spacious, comfortable building. From the sunlit terrace one enjoys a wide- ranging panorama from the Robièi area to Basodinogletscher and on the other side from Madone to Tödi and Piz Terri. It is often used as a stopover on col hikes through the canton of Tessin, but it is also popular as a starting point for high alpine and ski mountaineering tours.
