Located in Italy, this hut on the mountaintop will get you some of the best views of the Julian Alps for anyone who is willing to climb so high. You will have to scale 8,300 feet up the Foronon del Buinz Mountain if you want to stay here.
It was commissioned by the family of late mountain climber Luca Vuerich, who passed away due to a tragic avalanche back in 2010. This wood cabin was built by the architect Giovanni Pesamosca and ever since September 2012, hikers have been able to use this safe house. It boasts of a chapel-like design to avoid any pile up of snow and due to the entrance facing South, any snow that is built up during winter is melted.
Owing to the high altitude, helicopters had to be used for ferrying the materials required for construction and the helicopter had to make 18 trips! A total of 12 workers and Luca’s friends built this in a single day.
In case you do not want such a high level of adventure, you can seek refuge in other huts available at lower altitudes and might ask for a payment. Some passionate hikers do climb the path just to stay here!
