The starting point is at the Kirchenkarhütte above Hochgurgl. Mountain bike route #6059 takes you there. From the Kirchenkarhütte you first cycle towards the east. You keep cycling uphill along the gravel path to the mountain station of the Kirchenkarbahn. The environment is becoming increasingly barren. Once at the top you can enjoy the breathtaking panorama in the middle of many glaciers and 3000m peaks. In the summit area, just a few minutes' walk away, there is a second viewing platform that presents the Dolomites. No theatre, just big cinema. The actors: mountains, peaks, valleys.

Author’s recommendation

The tour runs along developed trails and is easily ridable by e-bike or mountain bike.
