Last Sunday for a series of lucky events, Giorgino and I were able to participate in one of the organized hike by Blud, a made in Udine blog that tells of events and activities both in the city and around Friuli Venezia Giulia.
WALK IN MALGA CREGNEDUL FROM THE PIANI DEL MONTASIO
Appointment on the Piani del Montasio at 9.30am.
It’s me, Giorgino, my friend Sonja (the one who always comes with me in the worst hikes. ) and her friend Giovanni.
At around 9.30am all the walkers begin to arrive and miraculously they all manage to find parking.
At the beginning of the path that also leads to the alpine hut “di Brazza” there is Chiara, one of the managers of Malga Cregnedul, who greets us and tells us a little about the walk and the history of the Malga.
Stefano Tomat and Chiara Biasutti are two guys from Udine who love mountains with the desire to open an alpine hut.
For years they saw Malga Cregnedul closed and abandoned and so they decided to knock on the door of the city hall of Chiusaforte and ask permission to be able to reopen it.
This is the second year they have managed it and even though they are still without water, electricity and gas, they have found a way to give hospitality to passing hikers.
MALGA CREGNEDUL HAS ALSO A HASHTAG: #FACCEDACREGNEDUL
Malga Cregnedul rises at 1515 meters at the foot of Mount Cregnedul, in the eastern area of the Montasio Plateau and in fact the toponym of Cregnedul derives from an ancient Slovenian name “Kraj na del” which means “border of the valley”.
During the summer the hut is open on weekends and the 3 central weeks of August.
Here you can come to drink a water and elderberry, a beer or taste a slice of homemade cake from Chiara.
If you have children prepare a nice snack and come and enjoy sitting comfortably in one of the many tables you find around the hut.
WE START THE WALK TO MALGA CREGNEDUL DI SOPRA
We are forty people, age 6 – 60 years.
In short, a beautiful team!
There will be at least 20 little dogs so I decide to keep Giorgino on a leash since he is also the biggest and curious one.
We take the path that goes up towards the Brazzà hut and at the first crossroad we all turn right following the CAI 624 path towards Malga Cregnedul.
The walk unwinds without major gradients along a dirt road. To our right we follow the panorama of the Julian alps bathed in sunshine.
ARRIVED IN CREGNEDUL
After an hour and a half with a slow pace, here we are!
What a beauty guys!
There are so many tables available to sit and a nice lawn where you can hang out towels and relax. There are deck chairs, benches and even umbrellas.
I, Sonja and Giovanni settle under the first cool canopy, drink three beer and eat our sandwiches in relax making friends with the other participants of the trip.
In front of us a spectacular panorama.
You can see the Kanin and its ski slopes, Mount Forato, Mount Poviz, Mount Cergnala, Cima Confine, Mount Robon and Cima del Lago.
At the end of the talk and beer is the time to go, we plan to reach Malga Montasio and do some cheesy shopping.
We greet everyone and leave.
A very nice day spent with amazing people in a real paradise on earth.
I suggest to everybody to visit the Piani del Montasio, to have a walk and easy the amazing cheese here is product.
