Rifugio Bogani is included in the regional park of the northern Grigna. Going towards the shelter you will find a succession of different surroundings, that characterize the impressive landscape of the park. Lower slopes are characterized by presence of birch, oak and chestnut, while ash and linden trees are in the valley rich of water. Climbing upwards, you will find the beautiful colors of beech (especially in autumn!) until the alpine pasture Moncodeno, where you can find wood of beech and larch. At an altitude of 1670 on the path that leads from Cainallo, there is Moncodeno, the place where Enrico, manager of Rifugio Bogani, recovers goats, milk them and from their fragrant flowered milk produces the goat cheese and tasty alpine “caprini”. Going on you can find rhododendron, mountain pine, vast grassy areas and limestone.
The limestone dominates the park Grigna: in particular from Moncodeno up to an altitude of 2370 meters, there are more than 600 caves. Most of caves has a vertical development ( the deepest one is “W the women” with its 1200 meters deep), but the most famous is probably the Ghiacciaia di Moncodeno, that contains real ice deposits.
