Trekking at Punta La Marmora

An evocative route along the tracks of the Barbagia's shepherds and of Alberto La Marmora, the first man who official gauge of the height of the summit based on sea level.
Journey in the heart of the Gennargentu from the Artilai area to the Is Bidileddos, passing through the ruins of the refuge named in memory of the illustrious "La Marmora" up to S'Arcu, the great crossroads between Perdas Crapias towards the summit and the ridges leading to the nearby Bruncu Spina. Between the barren mountains and the watercourses you can see the presence of wild animals, horses, the eagle and the mouflon.
