The ascent starts at Bodenalm carpark, which is in the district Wallhorn of Prägraten. Leave the driveway immediately and continue on the walkway. It leads you through a partly wood-covered area, across a small stream and then crosses a driveway. Thereafter, this path leads straight up to Nilljochhütte on 1990 metres above sea level.

This mountain lodge particularly suited for elderly people and children provides a magnificent panoramic view onto Virgental Valley and the Lasörling Group. Moreover, you can marvel at the summits of the Schober- and Malhalm Group from here. For those who are into extended hiking tours, Nilljochhütte is the perfect starting pint or finish for the Venediger mountain path.
