ETAPPE 6 – 9
Hochstubaihütte (3.174 m) – Hildesheimer Hütte(2.899 m) – Siegerlandhütte (2.710 m) – Gasthaus Hochfirst (1.860 m) – Brunnenkogelhaus (2.738 m)
The first stage of this high Alpine loop hike leads to Brunnenkogelhaus at (2738 m) altitude. Here you continue on the panoramic high-altitude trail towards Timmelsjoch pass where the route crosses the South Tyrolean border and travels to Schneeberghaus (2355 m). The return hike to Ötztal follows an ancient smugglers' trail via Windacher Scharte ridge. Close by you'll also find Siegerlandhütte (2710m). Traversing Gamsplatzl you ascend to Hildesheimer Hütte (2899 m) with lovely Zuckerhütl as scenic backdrop. To get to Hochstubaihütte (3174 m), the tour's very last stage, you can choose between two options: The expert tour travels across several glacier fields at an almost equal altitude level (current information on the spot!) or along the nearly ice-free route through Warenkar cirque and via Himmelsleiter.
Diese Route verläuft über ein markiertes Gletscherfeld! (ev. nur mit Bergführer)
It is recommended to wear hiking equipment such as breathable and weather-adapted outdoor clothing, ankle-high mountain boots, wind, rain and sun protection, cap and possibly gloves. It is also important to have enough food, as well as a first-aid package, a cell phone and a hiking map.
