Snow-shoe hike to Cima Plata-Plattner Spitze
Easy hike across mountain pastures and up to a picturesque peak: a splendid excursion with jaw-dropping panoramic views. In summer, curious marmots can often be spotted watching the hikers' every move on their way to the top of Cima Plata-Plattner Spitze.
|Altitude||1600 m / 2439 m|
Farmstead just outside the hamlet and follow the ample forestry road (no. 67) through the woods, into the valley and on to the Malga Plata-Plattner Alm mountain inn (approx. 1830 m, one hour from Plata-Platten). Cross the pastures along trail no. 67 and hike uphill to the smaller ones of the Plata-Platten lakes.
Then continue uphill to where the ridge runs a little lower (to the east of the peak) and follow the easy trail which leads west along the ridge. After a few minutes, you will reach the peak (2435 m). Total hiking time from Plata-Platten: 3 hours. Return along the same route.
Drive from Brunico-Bruneck or Chienes-Kiens to Falzes-Pfalzen and on to the hamlet Plata-Platten (approx. 1600 m above sea-level). Park your car at the Tierstallerhof.
