Right at the edge of the Dolomites the Plan de Corones rises – a local mountain of Brunico – which, at an elevation of 2260 m – is also very impressive for panoramic views. The ski resort is a major economic source for the whole of the Val Pusteria with 116 km of ski terrain and 32 lifts.

Directions

The climb to the Plan de corones summit platform with a total length of 16km and 1300 m ascent – is one long uninterrupted challenging ascension and therefore physically demanding. take particular care on the descent: the section between the Refuge Geiselberger e and the Pracken Refuge is very steep and will put anyone’s downhill biking skills to the test.

From the valley station ➊ 950 m of the Plan de corones cable car turn back toward Riscone, and at the Haus Alpenblick ➋ keep to the right and follow the signs for Malga ochsen. At the fork ➌ take a right onto the forest road at the sign Malga ochsen/Plan de corones, leaving the Malga ochsen behind ➍ 1900 m. continue ascending to another fork ➎; from here keep to the left up to Plan de corones ➏ 2260 m (Ristorante corones – open). continue rid- ing east, following the sign for the valley station of Valdaora to the Refuge Geiselberger ➐ 2090 m; turn left, still heading in the direction of the valley station of Valdaora (passing olang 1+2) to arrive at a very steep descent to the Refuge Pracken ➑ 1810 m. turn left onto a paved road (sign Brunico/Hexenplatzl) keeping on the same road for approx. 2 km to the fork ➒ 1580 m. From here take the forest road to the left (barrier – no sign) and continue up to the crossing ➓ at which point take a left onto path n. 14 direction Brunico/Hexenplatz, toward a fire road and in some parts ski run Ried, then descend into Riscone and return to the starting point at the valley station of the Plan de corones cable car.

Specificity

Interestingly right on the peak there is an impressive bell. the “concordia 2000“ holds the record for the biggest bell in the Alpine range, with a mighty 18.1 tons of weight. on the base lies a view platform and a bronze plaque on which all the names, direction and altitude of the surrounding peaks are engraved.
