Informationen zur Tour Col de Riciogogn
This hike takes us to the right-hand side (orographic) of the lake first, along a series of gentle ups and downs, on route 1. At the end of the lake we take route 19 as far as the Grünwaldalm alpine hut. We turn left before the hut – the hike now takes us along route 23. We continue on moderately steep slopes to the Sennesertal Valley as far as the Seitenbachscharte pass (2,330 m). From here we continue west until we begin to see the mountain ridge, crossing over various hairpin bends.
Descent: via the same route.
In the right conditions (check the weather reports for avalanches!) you can go down directly heading south-west from the summit to the small pass, approx. 100 m further down. From here we continue to the Lärchental Valley, along ups and downs and into the Grünbachtal Valley as far at the Grünwaldalm alpine hut and then return to the starting point.
After this challenging hike you can stop for refreshments at the Tuscherhof mountain farm in Braies di Fuori, or at the Hotel Erika.
