Mountaineering Highlight (Segment)
adidas TERREX planned a mountaineering Tour.
July 23, 2019
Directly between Mieminger chain and Wettersteinmassiv lies the Gaistal. No roads and no cable cars lead into the valley and the surrounding mountains - therefore, the mountain experience is close to nature. While the highest peaks of the two mountain ranges are reserved for experienced alpinists, some of the lower summits are also suitable for ambitious weekend hikers - and the view is no less picturesque. On this tour we will guide you on comfortable trails into Gaistal and then on narrow paths to the preaching stone.Sporty hikers can also plan the tour for a day, all others can simply two days to absorb the alpine idyll in itself. There are two huts to choose from: Either you spend the night on the Tilfuß Alm before climbing to the preaching stone or on the Wetterstein hut on the descent route. Just pick the hut that suits your travel plans better.From the tolled hiking car park "Salzbach" you follow the signposted and excellently developed Ganghofer way. The path takes you on beautiful paths through forests, along mountain meadows and over rushing streams to Tillfuß Alm. Even if you do not stay overnight, the Alm is perfect for a cozy break.Immediately thereafter, it becomes steeper: first through mountain forests, then over barren meadows and finally over gravel areas you rise to the summit. Above you rises dramatically the Wettersteingrat. Before going further, turn right and continue on a narrow but almost flat path to the preaching stone. The upstream summit gives you a fantastic panoramic view over the Gaistal and especially over the rugged summit chain of the Wetterstein massif.From here, follow the narrow path to the east, until you gently descend to the Wettersteinhütte. After a break - or overnight - our route takes you back to the valley and the parking lot.
