Turn-by-turn directions

La salita di un’ora dal parcheggio presso il maso Kreuznerhof (1.481 m) attraverso i boschi porta alla malga Walder fino alla cima del monte a 2.194 m. Qui si apre una vista panoramica sulla conca di Brunico, le bianche cime del gruppo delle Vedrette di Ries a nord e i meravigliosi altipiani della malga di Luson. Su sentieri pianeggiati l’escursionista può godere del bellissimo panorama alpino con i laghetti che si estendono da Cima Lasta alla malga Rastner. I prati alpestri invitano a soffermarsi ed ammirare la natura in tutta la su maestosità. Per una pausa si consiglia di fare sosta alla malga Starkenfeld oppure alla malga Rastner.
