The High Altitude Trail Neves - high above the lake Neves in Lappach/Lappago! The trail connects the two mountain refuges Edelraut Hütte/Ponte di Ghiaccio (2,545 m) and Chemnitzer Hütte/Giovanni Porro (2,419 m). 

The hike is rated intermediate for level of difficulty and offers unforgettable moments. The tour requires experience, not to suffer from vertigo, sure-footedness, physical fitness as well as suitable equipment.

Turn-by-turn directions

The hike starts at the lake Neves in Lappach/Lappago. You can start out in either direction: on the path nr. 26 towards the refuge Edelraut/Ponte di Ghiaccio or on the path nr. 24 to refuge Chemnitzer Hütte/Porro. The high altitude trail starts then from the huts on trail nr. 1, which leads over glacial moraine and lonely stone cirques through the glacial landscape of 3,000-metre-plus peaks (Weißzint/Punta Bianca, Möseler/Grande Mesule and Turnerkamp/Cima di Campo) of the main ridge of the Zillertal Alps. The Alta Via di Neves is shorter than many other trails in the region - but also one of the most beautiful.

Huts: mountain refuge Ponte di Ghiaccio/Edelraut Hütte or mountain refuge Giovanni Porro/Chemnitzer Hütte 

The tour is possible also in the opposite direction.

Ende September 2018 in umgekehrter Richtung gemacht. Schöner leichter Höhenweg mit netten Wirtsleuten auf der Chemnitzerhütte.
