The route takes us first through the centre of Malbun. From the bottom lift station in Sareis we take the Sareis chairlift to the Sareiserjoch at 2,000 metres above sea level. Here walkers can enjoy the wonderful panoramic views and, if they wish, hike to the Sareiserjoch ridge in around an hour. From Sareis we descend along a gravel road past Alp Turna and then follow a series of gently rising hiking trails on the opposite side of the mountain towards Malbun. Shortly before Alp Pradamee there is a short descent into the centre of Malbun, a good place to stop off for a meal.

Author’s recommendation

Instead taking the Sareis chairlift you can hike to the Sareiserjoch ridge from the centre of Malbun (+1h, 400m).
