Beautiful mountain tour with short via ferrata on the Verdinser Plattenspitze (2680 m) in the Sarntal Alps.

The tour takes us across the sun-drenched high plateau of Merano 2000, which is popular with outdoor sports enthusiasts of all kinds in summer and winter. We climb the rocky Verdinser Plattenspitze via a via ferrata, which should definitely not be underestimated, especially by mountain novices. While the Ifinger next door is very popular as a destination for tours and especially well frequented in good weather, you meet far fewer other climbers on the Verdinser Plattenspitze and, with a bit of luck, have the summit to yourself even in high season. Those who reach the top can look forward to breathtaking panoramic views in all directions, which are certainly worth one or two souvenir photos. On the way up, don't miss the stop at the Kuhleitenhütte, and on the way down, the Waidmannalm offers good South Tyrolean cuisine.
