At an elevation of 1,691 m (5,548 ft.), and with a prominence of 140 m (459 ft.), Monte Galbiga is regarded as a scenic viewpoint and is also a popular hiking destination near the city of Como, situated in Lombardy province, Italy.

The area has several beautiful lakes of which up to six is visible on a clear day.
It is possible to stay at Venini Galbiga Mountain Hut, which is more of a hotel than a hut. It was used as barracks by the Alpine troopers back in the day.

The nearest mountain hut is Rifugio Venini located 546m/1 790ft ESE of the summit.
