The hike starts at the lake Neves in Lappago-Lappach. You can start out in either direction: on the path nr. 26 towards the refuge Ponte di Ghiaccio/Edelraut or on the path nr. 24 to refuge Porro/Chemnitzer Hütte. The high altitude trail starts then from the huts on trail nr. 1, which leads over glacial moraine and lonely stone cirques through the glacial landscape of 3,000-metre-plus peaks (Punta Bianca/Weißzint, Grande Mesule/Möseler and Cima di Campo/Turnerkamp) of the main ridge of the Zillertal Alps. The Alta Via di Neves is shorter than many other trails in the region—but also one of the most beautiful.
The tour is possible also in the opposite direction.
