Hochwart summit tour at Pizol
Show all 8 images
The Pizol area is known for its breathtaking views over the St. Gallen Rhine Valley to Lake Constance. Nowhere else can the view be enjoyed as undisturbed as on the highest peaks of the hiking area. The hike to the Gamidauerspitz is part of the summit quartet on the Pizol. The stages Garmil, Gamidauerspitz, Hochwart and Pizol can all be done independently of each other, but can also be combined as desired.
The well-known, turquoise blue Wildsee is embedded in stony scree, which now only hints at the presence of the former Pizol glacier. In the background it is lined with the striking mountain peaks around the Pizol. On this tour we will experience the Wildsee and the crater from different angles. In addition, there is an impressive view of the Schottensee, the Schwarzplangg, the Pizol summit and the Gaffara valley, where up to 600 sheep graze in the summer months.
The starting point of the route is the Pizol hut on the Pizol high plateau. With gondola and chair lifts we travel from Wangs over the ford and Gaffia to the mountain station Pizolhütte. From there the ascent begins on the first part of the well-known 5-lake hike in the direction of Wildseeluggen. Arrived in the gap, we enjoy a magnificent view of the Wildsee, the Pizolgipfel, the Grauer Hörner and the Hochwart. Now we leave the 5-lakes hike and follow the white-red-white marked hiking trail on the left along the Wildsee towards Batöni, Weisstannen, Unterlavtina. After a short time we reach the next junction. Here we follow the path towards Weisstannen. Over the moraines of the former Pizol glacier we now go again a few meters over stony terrain up to the Lavtinasattel, from which we have a brilliant view in the direction of Lavtina and back to the Wildseeluggen. Now follow the last meters of altitude along the path on the right side, until we arrive after about 10-15min on the Hochwart.
For the way back we have different combination options:
- Same way back
- Combinations with the summit quartet or the 5-lakes hike
