Round hike from Naturno on the Vinschgau Sun Mountain through the 1000-step gorge.

From Naturno, the circular hike leads up to the Unterstell mountain station on trail no. 10 and continues to the Lintalm. Turn right onto the Meraner Höhenweg (trail no. 24) and past several mountain pastures to an imposing mountain bridge. The 1000-step gorge starts here, sure-footedness is essential - beware of wet weather. Shortly before the Hochforchalm, turn right and take trail no. 29 and 39 back down towards Naturno. Take the panoramic path back to the starting point.
