Turn-by-turn directions

Take the chairlift to the Watles mountain station. From here, hike the Schliniger Höhenweg (Slingia Alpine Ridgeway)  to the Sesvennahütte mountain hut (2.256 m), continuing to the Schlinig Pass (2.309 m) and the Swiss border (2.295 m). From here, head to the Uinaschlucht gorge (a unique trail roughly 900 m in length carved into the rock between 1908 and 1910, roughly 1 hour from the Sesvennahütte mountain hut) and continue on to Sur-En (CH – 1.125 m).

From the gorge, the return trip can be made via the same trail or by public transport. www.sii.bz.it

Possible refreshment stops include the Plantapatschhütte mountain hut, the Watles mountain station, the Sesvennahütte or in Sur-En.

From the middle of June to the middle of October, guided walks, including return service, are organised. More information is available from the Mals/ Malles Venosta tourist information office or by phone: +39 0473 83 11 90.
