A hike from alpine pasture to alpine pasture


Begin in the village of Lichtenberg, in the upper Val Venosta (Vinschgau) Valley, at an elevation of 927 metres and located between Prad (Prato) and Glorenza (Glurns). Go south, following markings for Trail No. 12 (initially a farm access road, later a sometimes steep forest road), via Pineithof Farm and continuing up to Platzhof Farm (1,354 m). From there, continue south through shady forested slopes, sometimes a moderate grade and sometimes very steep, up to the little Schartalm alpine farm (1,829 m); a good 2.5 hours from the starting point. From there, stay with Trail No. 13 along a high-alpine trail, which is sometimes flat and sometimes a bit steep, through forested hillsides and up to a mountain meadow with a weather cross (2,063 m). Continue a bit further into Gutfalltal Valley and to the main mountain huts of the Lichtenberger alpine pastures (Lichtenberger Alm, Dorferalm alpine farms; 2,066 m); about 3.5 hours from the village of Lichtenberg. Descent: Follow the good trail, which is initially unlabeled but later marked No. 14, that crosses the pastures and forested slopes, towards the Pazzinhöfe Farms (approx. 1,540 m). Continue following Trail No. 14, sometimes through forest and sometimes through the meadows of the Lichtenberger Farm, which runs just off the farm road (Höfestraße) down to Lichtenberg; about 2.5 hours from the Alm.
