A WARM OASIS IN THE MOUNTAINS


There are many lovely mountain huts in the Alps. A mountain hut (also known as Alpine hut, mountain shelter or refuge) is a building located in the mountains intended to provide food and shelter to mountaineersclimbers and hikers. Some of them are located in remote areas and can only be reached by long hikes, and these are usually very basic, while others are more like Alpine lodges and they can be quite comfortable. I was at this lovely refuge at 1,350 m on Sunday, had toasts there, and the home made cake with nuts, almonds and chestnut cream was simply delicious!



Beautiful wooden interiors with a touch of the Himalayas...




A magical oasis of warmth and light in the dark night of the mountains...

Such a cosy place to be in after a long hike dear Anna :) I can see some hindu architectural touches.. like Lord Ganesh's picture (God revered by the Hindus) and the little flags that have chants written on them. These flags are usually tied high up in the hills in India mainly because when the wind blows they carry the positivity through the valley:)

Dearest Anna,
The all wood building in itself is such a charm. It creates an instant feeling of warmth and with a coffee and chestnut torte, you are half way in heaven. Thanks for sharing and for your pride about your area!
Hugs,
Mariette

Thank you, dear Pallavi! :)
Well, the owner loves the Himayan regions and he has traveled to Nepal and Tibet, and he loves taking a bit of his beloved regions back to the Alps!

Dearest Mariette,
Thank you for your sweet words! This cozy place indeed creates a feeling of warmth amidst the mountains. Thank you for appreciating my little corner of the world, dear Mariette!
Hugs to you!
