Description

This route requires surefootedness and a head for heights! The tour begins at the Alp Trida saddle and continues toward Viderjoch. From there, the markings lead us to our left past Flimspitz. We bypass a rock structure and march back up to the ridge and to Flimjoch. The path from Flimjoch leads along an alpine route toward Bürkelkopf. At the peak a magnificent panorama opens up with Paznaun, the Silvretta and Samnaun groups. It continues in the direction of Vesulscharte over a small glacier to Obernberg. From there we hike slightly uphill to Bürkelscharte, before the steep path leads down in loose scree to the lakes and the mountain station.
