You can stay at this mountain top hotel in the Julian Alps for free on one condition

There is a hotel in the Julian Alps which finds itself at the peak of Foronen Buinz Mountain that can sleep up to nine people at any one time. You can even stay there for free – but there is one catch:

Can you hike to the summit of an 8,300 foot mountain?

The owners of the hotel welcome anyone to stay for free so long as they scale the mountain which is in excess of 2,500 metres.

The wooden hut is built high in the Italian Alps, so high they needed to carry the materials to the summit by helicopter in order to build it.

 The trail leading to the top is called the Ceria-Merlone trail and the hotel was built as a tribute to a climber by the name Luca Vuerich who died at the hands of an avalanche while climbing a waterfall.

A V-shaped structure made of wood and steel, it is well able to withstand the elements and offers up to 9 weary climbers some luxury refuge after scaling the trail all the way to the summit.
