Planned by Ötztal
The third section of the Ötztal Trek takes you up to the highest peaks of the Ötztal Alps. All three stages are real mountain adventures, but here too, the only glacier crossing can be done without crampons and ice picks. The Gurgler Ferner has meanwhile declined sharply and so you can walk through the tours with almost no ice contact. Despite all this, this section is a hiking trail for high-season mountain hikers due to long stretches and challenging ascents.Stage 10: From Obergurgl to the Ramolhaus7 hours - 16 kilometersStage 11: Over the rocky Ramoljoch to Martin Busch Hut6 hours - 11.5 kilometersStage 12: Through glacier valleys to the Similaun hut2 hours - 4.5 kilometers
