The sparsely populated little Planol (Planeiltal) Valley


The starting point is the village of Planeil at 1,599 m; approach is via the road from Malles (Mals). Follow the broad valley trail (No. 6), which is beautiful and only has a slight uphill grade; you’ll cross grassy slopes until you come to what remains of Petesetteshof Farm on your right. Shortly afterwards, turn left on broad trail, which has wonderful views and an intermediate grade: this trail leads up to the Planeiler Alm alpine pastures (2,069 m) just under 2 hours from Planeil. Descent: From the alpine pasture hut, follow the road that leads out of the valley through the hilly pastures, first flat then a short downhill segment and then flat again, back out above Planeil, and then a steep grade back down to the starting point; about 1.5 hours from the Alm.
