This hike takes you past Totenkirchl Chapel and picturesque Totensee Lake to the peaks of Villandro (Villanderer) Mountain.

Directions


The starting point for this hike is Gasserhütte mountain hut at 1,744 m, which is accessible by car from Villandro (Villanders). After this point, the road is closed for traffic. Follow the signposted trail to Totenkirchl (marked No. 6) up to Moar in Plun Hütte (tavern). As the trail widens, it turns into a Via Crucis, and goes on to Pfrodner Alm (basic tavern) and eventually up to the little chapel called Totenkirchl (2,186 m; hiking time to this point is about 1 1/2 hours). On the left, the trail runs almost flat to Totensee, a little lake (2,208 m). From there, follow the marked trail up grassy slopes and steeply up the eastern ridge of the mountain, until you reach the cross at the main peak (2,509 m; roughly 1 hour of hiking time from the lake). Descend from the peak on the eastern side of the mountain until you reach a wayside shrine that is clearly visible. From there, take Trail No. 1 down the hill until you meet Trail No. 6 again, which will take you back to the starting point.

    Cari amici, dopo una bella ed intensa camminata, fra boschi e pascoli, si arriva alla Totenkirchl, una piccolissima chiesetta. Proseguendo sul sentiero si arriva al tranquillissimo laghetto Totensee. Per arrivare fino alla croce di Villanderberg, il sentiero si fa abbastanza ripido; questo sentiero è stato da poco rifatto, molto probabilmente una fortissima pioggia ha distrutto il vecchio percorso. Giunti alla cima di Villanderberg, si può ammirare una bellissima vista. Di aiuto, per osservare il panorama, un cannocchiale montato su ghiera girevole a 360°, con relativa legenda di tutte le cime. Si consigliano scarponi, k-way per il vento freddo (che sulla cima soffia forte anche il 15 Agosto) e protezione solare . Miraccomando ...nonostante il semaforo rosso tentate il percheggio a GasserHutte, altrimenti ulterioi 300 mt di dislivello, sul percorso già prestabilito. Buona Escursione! Supercollo
