The original route of stage 3 is currently not passable due to road works between the Wiesle and the Untere Hemerachalm! In this area there is a local, signposted diversion via an existing forest path.
NIEDERTHAI –> Wiesle –> Hemrach Alm –> Dorf –> Ötztaler Ache –> Fischbach –> LÄNGENFELD
Pure mountain idyll can be found in the small Alpine village of Niederthai. Heading a little further it becomes even more romantic: at the heart of the forest and a nice-smelling mountain meadow there is a small chapel and an adjacent Alpine pasture called Wiesle. As in earlier years, as if time has stopped here. Also at the next stopover, the Hemrach Almen pasturelands, you will inhale this truly authentic flair in unspoilt surroundings.
The name of the area already describes the scenery, deriving from "the long field". Down in the valley close to the Strelesperre platform at Fischbach, visitors experience almost "elated moments" while watching the dancing swirls of the Fischbach waters, the biggest feeder brook of the Ötztaler Ache.
Surefootedness, a good physical shape, stamina
No major difficulties
