The tour takes us steeply uphill to Pfunderer Joch, from where we have a wonderful view of the Pustertal Dolomites, and then on the legendary descent down into the Pustertal valley.

The almost 2,600 m high Pfunderer Joch between the Pfitscher and Pfunder valleys in South Tyrol is a popular component of multi-day Alpine crossings. From Sterzing it can - depending on your fitness - also be done in a one or two-day tour. However, if you want to split the loop, you also need to bring a bit of an adventurous spirit or a tent or sleeping bag, as there are no overnight accommodation options apart from a few unmanaged alpine huts.
