To the Glockhauser Mountain

An easy “Three-thousander” with valley view

Starting point of the ski tour to the Glockhauser mountain is the car park in Melago/Melag. From there north-westward across soft ground up to the last post of a disused ski lift. Across the steep slope towards the right and further towards Melagtal Valley. At the bridge, cross to the right-hand side of the valley and at a height of 2,300 m veer left to the Schönkar ridge. After the large trough from right to left across stepped terrain on to a shoulder. Across the back, left up to the ridge (take care!) and further up to the summit. Your climb is rewarded with a beautiful valley view and panoramic view to the nearby summits.

Descend via the Mitterkar or along the ascent route.
