The Tents are nice furnished and well prepared. Even a thunderstorm was no problem. The surrounding is marvellous, overlooking a part of the Auob valley. You can really feel as part of the nature without the lack of comfort. The rangers are helpful and extremely friendly - a lot of reasons to come back.
