Turn-by-turn directions

Note: a part of the way no. 14 “Venosta Valley High Mountain Trail” is closed due to mudslide, between Patsch and Zuckbichl (to min. summer 2022).

The sunny high route starts at the summit station of the cable car in S. Martino al Monte, offering a breath-taking panoramic view on Upper Val Venosta, Val Martello and the Ortles mountain range. The descent follows the Ilswaal irrigation channel to the church of S. Egidio down to Corzes near Silandro.
