A downhill hike along the eastern face of Mount Kronplatz – with plenty of extraordinary, all-round panoramic views.
|Altitude||1156 m / 2275 m|
Take the cable car to the top of Mount Kronplatz from Casola-Gassl near Valdaora-Olang and start your hike on the peak: Follow trail no. 3, then change onto trail no. 2, then take 5B and finally 3 three again. A treeless path across meadows and fields on the eastern slopes of Mount Kronplatz will take you downhill all the way to the edge of the forest. There, follow the signs to Lake Pracken, a water reservoir of the local skiing resort, and hike around it. Continue downhill along the forestry road until you get to Malga Oberegger-Obereggeralm, a quaint mountain inn with a lovely, sun-spoilt terrace. From the inn, hike back to Casola-Gassl.
The cable car valley station in Casola-Gassl can easily be reached by car or bus from Valdaora-Olang.
