Pleasant route across Montechiaro/Lichtenberg and the Platzhof farm into the 12er Trail.
From Prato/Prad, the gateway to the Stelvio National Park and to Solda/Sulden, you proceed across the Suldenbach streem to Agumes/Agums and from there via a beautiful meadow path with view to the fields, castles and summits of the Upper Venosta Valley in northerly direction to Montechiaro/Lichtenberg. Here starts the ascent on asphalt up to the Lichtenberg Fortress and then on gravel further up to Adelheid Schöpf Lechner from the Platzhof farm (1,354 m). After a nice snack (Brotzeit) with a view towards the direction of Sluderno/Schluderns and on the 3,202 m high Allitzer Spitz peak, you reach the highest point after a few metres further uphill. A flowy descent on narrow and wide trails (S1 and S2), with a few technical tight turns – no risk of boredom. From the Agumsbergerhöfe farms we carry on rolling, soon on tarmac back into the direction of the starting point to the interesting aquaprad National Park visitor center and look forward to a leisurely drink containing electrolytes.
Tip: The unusual name of the tour relates to a field name at the Agumser Berg mountain at the former climb from the Platzhof farm to Gawierg.
