After a short and leisurely ascent across the sunny plateau at Watles to the Schafberg, we walk along not too steep paths to the Oberdorfer Alm in Zerzer Tal. We hike through the wonderfully quiet mountain valley back to the Reschenpass road at the Fischerhäusern.

From the middle station of the Watles (Plantapatsch) ski area, the trail climbs gently and soon reaches the Pfaffen lakes in wonderful tranquillity. Heading north over the sunny, wide slopes of the Grossboden we reach the highest point of the tour, the Schafberg (2411). Now the scenery changes as we descend into the Zerzertal, which is completely quiet in winter and is one of the most beautiful alpine high valleys in South Tyrol. After the Bruckeralm, the trail continues steadily downhill through mountain forests, past the little church of St. Martin and the Faulsee lake, until you reach the Reschenpass road at the Fischerhäusern.

Profile picture of Albert Rinn Author Albert Rinn
Outdooractive is for me the home as an outdoor enthusiast in two aspects. It is my professional home as sales manager of Outdooractive GmbH & Co KG and my private home with mountain tours, ski tours, mountain bike tours and tobogganing in the Allgäu Alps and other areas of the Alps, as well as hiking and cycling tours throughout my leisure time. Outdooractive inspires and informs me about all my activities. Most of all, I love the good outdooractive map, which gives me all the details to find the "right way" anywhere in the world - on the web during the preparation and on the spot with the app.
