Hike amidst rock cloistures to the high mountain summit of Upikopf

Starting from Glieshof Hotel (1,807 m), follow Trail  No. 9, which is quite wide, through the forest and grassland for about 1 hour up to the Malga di Upi (Upiaalm) alpine pasture (2,225 m).  Continue up a moderately steep mountain path to the outlet of Upisee Lake (2,552 m; about 2 hours from the starting point). Turn left from here, (NOT from the east side of the lake where the tributary is located!). Continue onto the main road and follow Trail No. 9 to a noticeable grassy ridge (note: sometimes there are no visible tracks) and on to the foot of the mountain. Still following Trail  No. 9, climb the rocky and rugged steep slope. Finally, onto a less steep path in the southwest ridge of the mountain to the highest point (3,175m); about 2 hours from Upisee Lake. Descent: Return using the same trail.
