Sleep above 3000 meters

Hiking Collection by
komoot

High up in the mountains, where conditions are harsh and our natural habitat is far away - up there, it can actually be quite comfortable to sleep. Thanks to the rustic alpine huts of the Alpine clubs, mountain lovers can dine and rest in airy heights. These alpine refuges, which are situated at an altitude of more than 3000m, have a very special atmosphere. Every step of the arduous ascent is worthwhile, if only because of the breathtaking starry sky.

    Ramolhaus

    Mountaineering Highlight

    From Obergurgl always slightly ascending route over the Romolweg, the last 200 Hm are a little more exhausting. But then fantastic views of the glacier landscape, good food and drink and friendly staff.
    The second possibility is to hike from Vent over the Ramoljoch and then descend to the hut.
