Nadine planned a hike.
July 16, 2020
Stage 3 is rather moderate with 14.9 kilometers and 520 vertical meters in the ascent - but the descent with 1,390 vertical meters is tough. You hike along the Pitztaler Almenweg up to the Steinbockjoch, further to the Mittelberglesee, to Neururer Berg, to Arzler Alm and to Tiefentalalm. The tour is very entertaining despite the long way downhill. If you are lucky, you will see a few stately examples of the namesake in the region around the Steinbockjoch.The ascent to the Steinbockjoch is quite demanding. The path is partially exposed, narrow and secured with a rope. A head for heights is a must! The prospects on the way make up for all your efforts: you can see mountains like the Hohe Geige and the Pitztaler and Ötztaler glaciers. The Mittelberglesee with its mysterious turquoise water is worth a long rest.The Tiefentalalm, or alternatively the Neubergalm or accommodations in Piösmes, are ideal for an overnight stay. Only with an overnight stay on the Neubergalm you have to expect an hour more walking time. Whichever accommodation you choose, enjoy a hearty meal and a cool beer!
