An Exceptional High Elevation Trail
First you ascend from Gasthof Hochfirst to Timmelsjoch Pass. From the Snack Station on Timmelsjoch Pass the trail leads past several small lakes, ascending gently to Wannenkar Cirque. Crossing Wannenkar and also scenic Rötenkar and Wietenkar you switchback up through steep and boulder-strewn terrain until you reach Wannenkarsattel. Follow the constantly climbing trail on the ridge to the summit of Wilde Rötespitz, the tour‘s highest point. Awe-inspiring views include Ötztal’s Wildspitze, North Tirol’s highest mountain, majestic Weißkugel and splendid Zuckerhütl in the Stubai Alps! A slightly descending path takes you down to Brunnenkogelhaus nestling at the peak of Vorderer Brunnenkogel.
Hiking down to Sölden you follow the trail to Fiegl‘s Hütte in Windachtal (approx. 2 hrs): here you can take the Windach hiking shuttle bus to Sölden (you save about 2 hrs). You reach the trailhead of the next stage by taking the public bus from Sölden to Obergurgl.
