Lasörling Altitude trail

Magnificent mountain panoramas and shining peaks

A gentle breeze brushes your cheeks, the soothing scent of mountain hay rises to your nose - just you and the mountains - you feel yourself again. On the Lasörling Altitude Trail you enjoy the all-round hiking experience for the whole family.

Starting from the parking lot Guggenberg in Matrei i. O. you reach the Zunig Alm through a shady mountain forest. This is already above the tree line and offers a magnificent view of the Tauern massif. A path branches off to the Zunigsee and further on to the Kleiner and Großer Zunig (2,776 m).

The first section of the Lasörling High Trail leads over the ridge and valley cuts to the Wetterkreuz Hut on the First. Alternatively, the long-distance trail can also be started from here, because to the Wetterkreuzhütte also drives the Hut cab.

 

On the second section of the Lasörling Altitude Trail you reach the Zupalsee Hütte via the Heflerhöhe covered with dwarf shrub heath. Continue over the Lasörling ridge with a magnificent panoramic view over the valleys shining in dark green. Above, in contrast, the shining peaks and snow surfaces of the Venice massif. The next destination is the Lasörlinghütte via the Griffte dump, the Merschenalm at the bottom of the Steinkaastal and the Gumpachlacke. The Lasörlinghütte is the starting point for the ascent to the Lasörling (3,098 m) and several alpine crossings.

 

The third section can be walked on different variants. The family-friendly route leads first out of the valley to the Raineralm, further over steep slopes to the Berger Alm and over the preceding ridge of the Bergerkogel to the Bergersee lake and the Bergersee Hütte. The access to the Lasnitzental valley to the Lasnitzenhütte via the Muhs-Panoramaweg high above Prägraten am Großvenediger. From there you reach the Bödensee and the Neue Reichenbergerhütte via the Micheltalscharte, the Rote Lenke. The last section over deep green hills to the Daberlenke and through the Dabertal to the Clara hut. As a conclusion of this wonderful long-distance trail, you can enjoy the beauty and wildness of the Umbal Falls, where the Islitzeralm is located at the end.

 

With the exception of a few crossings that link up with the high trail, hikes through the alpine landscape of the "Virgentaler Schattseite" can be undertaken in various directions. Each hut has several accesses and can also be reached from the valley. Despite considerable differences in altitude, the Lasörling Höhenweg is also suitable for families. However, it is advisable to adapt the tour to the children. For mountain-experienced hikers or in the company of mountain guides, there are many fantastic summit tours along the trails. From easy summits to difficult ascents - if you have an eye for nature and take the time, you will take home many beautiful impressions and experiences.
