Strange rock cave
Enjoy a wonderful view of the high alpine plateau of Schlern/Sciliar and of the Rosengarten/Catinaccio Mountain Group

Beginning: Lavina Bianca/Weißlahnbad This trail is usually snow-free, so you can do most of the ascent without snow-shoes. An interesting feature at the beginning of this hike is Tschetterloch, a strange rock cave with a pre-historic background. The steep ascent between rock walls up to Tschafatschsattel (2069 m) takes about 2 hours. Once you get out of the gorge you enjoy a wonderful view of the high alpine plateau of Schlern/Sciliar and of the Rosengarten/Catinaccio Mountain Group. With snow-shoes you hike down over mountain pines to Sesselschwaige (1940 m). From here you continue on Knüppelweg path through the Schlern/Sciliar gorge down to the Peter Frag wayside cross. Now you turn left on path no. 7 and reach a path leading up to Tschafon Hut (1738 m) within 45 minutes. On path 4-4a you descend to Lavina Bianca/Weisslahnbad and St. Zyprian/S. Cipriano.
