The Alpini Trail in the Upper Val Pusteria (Hochpustertal) Valley is the boldest, most spectacular, and most difficult trail in South Tyrol and one of the most beautiful in the Alps.

Ascent: From Fischleinboden in the Sesto (Sextner) side valley of the same name (1,454 m, road here from Moso (Moos); parking area; Dolomitenhof Hotel), walk for about a half hour along a wide valley road, open only to vehicles for residents, until you reach the Talschlusshütte mountain hut (1,540 m; restaurant). From there, continue on Trail No. 102/103 into Altensteintal up to the fork (for Dreizinnenhütte mountain hut, continue straight ahead). Turn left, and follow Trail No. 103, which isn’t difficult technically, over the river and high above the narrow Bacherntal Valley, mostly a moderate grade, up to the Zsigmondy Comici Hütte mountain hut (2,235 m; open in summer); 2.5 hours from Fischleinboden. High Trail: From the Zsigmondy Comici Hütte, take Trail No. 101/103 southeast up as far as the junction with Trail No. 101 near the little frozen Eissee Lake (2,326 m), then continuing across rocky terrain and scree, without further problems, across all the way to the actual Alpini
