Safety informationFor the variant via Tritt and Latschüelfurgga, surefootedness and a head for heights are a prerequisite, as you have to climb an iron ladder. In addition, the route should not be walked when there is still snow or thunderstorms are approaching.
Tips and hints
Although short, steep sections have to be overcome again and again, the hike is not overly demanding. With 480 metres of ascent and 380 metres of descent, the route is moderate compared to the previous stages. It should be possible to complete the 11 km in around 3 hours (without a break). In any case, there is enough time to enjoy the various viewpoints and to visit the different settlements a little more closely.
