Turn-by-turn directions

From Sesto (path 12c) or from the Innerfeldtal/ Val Campo di Dentro (path 12) we hike over the Gsell valley on forest path to the summit of the "Aussergsell". We continue through a slightly shallower passage to the "Innergsell". The mountain meadows blossom in an incredible sea of flowers, the colourfulness is indescribable. From Innergsell we descend back to the valley and return to the starting point.  Food and provisions should be brought along, as there is no managed hut (suitable place for picnics).
