Close encounter with the Ortler Massif
This high trail runs under Mount Ortler and Gran Zebrù (Königsspitze) Peak
Ascent: From the old church in Solda (Sulden) at an elevation of 1,844 metres, head out along Trail No. 4 through the forest in moderately steep switchbacks, up towards the Tabarettahütte mountain hut, until the fork where High Trail No. 10 branches off to the left (2,145; the Tabarettahütte mountain hut is a good hour higher up); 45 minutes from Solda. High Trail: from the fork we mentioned, follow High Trail No. 10 up a slight grade, heading south across a forest, to Langenstein (2,330 m; chairlift summit station and restaurant). Continue along the high trail (now signposted No. 3), first flat and then rising steadily across the moraine of the End-der-Welt glacier, to a ridge with a rocky crag, and finally traversing scree and craggy slopes, to the Rifugio Coston (Hintergrathütte) mountain hut at the end of the high trail (2,661 m; mountain refuge that serves food); a good 2 hours from the beginning of the high trail. Descent: from the mountain hut, start out on Mountain Trail No.
