The Saurüssl tour starts above Lasa/Laas. Head over Alpine pastures to the forest edge and over rugged terrain to the peak with the original marble cross. The real charm of the peak is the panorama. The view extends across the Upper Vinschgau valley including the following mountains and peaks: the Vinschger Sonnenberg, the Jennwand, the Laaser Spitze, the Schluderspitze, the Lyfispitze, the Laaser Ferner and the Taitschroi in the distance. The tour requires stamina and sure-footedness.

Possible refreshment stop: Obere Laaser Alm Alpine farm (June – September)
