The Große Laugen towers mightily as a porphyry summit and
offers a wonderful panoramic view. Incidentally, it was
first documented as having been climbed in August 1552 by
by Regina von Brandis and her daughter Katharina Botsch.
Botsch - admittedly led by a man,
namely Jakob von Boymont zu Payrsberg. Because of its
exposed position, the summit is very susceptible to thunderstorms and is
and is said to be the seat of the weather witches.
The tour is suggested as a traverse because the descent is less steep that way and the scenery is magnificent. From the pass, follow the road southwards for a short while, then take trail no. 133 to the right (signposted Laugensee/Bonacossaweg). The trail now climbs steeply and partly in steps up to the tree line, then you soon reach the Laugensee lake. At the lake, keep to the left and cross over to the southeast ridge, over which the path leads - partly in steps - up to the summit in a well-built and hardly exposed manner. (The clearly visible but unmarked ascent to the right around the lake and through the eastern flank is very exposed and slippery in parts; not recommended!) From the summit, continue along the ridge and descend on marker no. 10A into the meadow terrain and reach the beautifully situated, catered Laugenalm. From there you hike partly on the forest path, partly on the trail back to the Gampenpass.
