Demanding but worthwhile high mountain hiking tour to South Tyrol’s highest lake plateau with an awe-inspiring mountain scenery.
The circular hike starts at the car park at the Glieshöfe farms (2,677 m) at the end of the Matschertal valley. Trail no. 1 runs past Innere Matscheralm alpine pasture (2,022 m - not open to the public) and the last piece leads to the lake area via trail no. 4, where the hike reaches its highest point on 3,020 m. Turning left on to trail no. 1, the hike descends to the refuge Oberetteshütte and back to the Glieshöfe farms. Refreshments: AVS refuge Oberettes with overnight accommodation, in the restaurants in Mazia/Matsch
