We take the funicular Monte Elmo (2041 m) and start with our excursion eastwards on way nr. 4 past the Hahnspielhut (2150 m) and the Sillianer Hut (2447 m). On the way you can see the Three Peaks at the other side of the valley with the Mount Paterno. We follow the way to the highest point – the Hornischeck (2550 m), the Hollbrucker Spitze (2581 m), Hochgräntenjoch (2429 m), Demutspitze (2591m), Schöntalhöhe (2634 m) and last the peaks of the Eisenreich (2665 m) where you can find some rest of World War I.
