Hohe Mut with glacier experience.
The most beautiful vantage point in the Alps.
Far above Gurgl towers the lookout peak Hohe Mut (2,653 m). From the grassy ridge, hikers enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of 21 Dreitausneder and a dozen Glestcher. In close contact with the high alpine mountain world, they can already feel the cool breeze of the nearby ice. Depending on their preferences, hikers come up from Gurgl on foot or by gondola; a circular trail leads right up to the moraines.
Landscape shaped by the ice age.
Granatenkogl, Seelenkogl, Schalfkogl, Zirmkogl .... If you want to name all the mighty elevations before your eyes, you will be busy for a while on Hohe Mut. But the peaks and glacier fields have enough of what we so often lack. Time and patience. The high alpine panorama from the summit plateau (and from the sun terrace of the Hohe Mut Alm) alone is worth taking the moderately difficult hiking trail up from Gurgl. Even families with motivated kids can manage the climb, which always brings new incentives to continue.
From the starting point in Gurgl, the trail first leads along the Gaisbergweg to the Zirben Alm, through the Obergurgler Zirbenwald natural monument and on into the Rotmoostal valley. For a first stop, the Schönwieshütte with its inviting terrace is ideal. Then continue on to the Hohe Mut ridge and finally to the summit. Retoiur you can choose between the same route and the Hohe Mut cable car. Another variant leads through the Gaisberg valley to the Hohe Mut.
If you want to admire the glacier ice up close, it's best to follow the Rotmoostal water strider circular hiking trail. The tour begins with a gondola ride up to Hohe Mut before a leisurely walk on relatively flat terrain towards Rotmossfernen. Stony mountain paths then lead up to a prominent moraine at 2,720 m, the highest point of the hike, directly in front of the mighty Rotmoosferner. In the Rotmoos valley, the trail runs back out of the valley to the Schönwies hut, through the Swiss stone pine forest and past the Rotmoos waterfall to Gurgl.
Tip: On the nature park Ötztal developed theme trail 'Of glaciers, garnets and bellflowers' you get to know the region even better.
