Across Alpine meadows and a scenic suspension bridge you walk along the trail from Vent to Rofen. Here you continue towards the goods lift of Vernagthütte and further on across the picture-book Rofner Schlucht gorge. The permanently ascending trail is very steep and demanding before you reach Hochjoch Hospiz. A switch-backing and very steep path takes you up the slope. Turn left after approx. 15 walking minutes. The eternal ice of Kesselwandferner features many dangerous crevasses, therefore it is strongly recommended to cross the glacier field only in a group and with ropes – guided by a professional mountain expert!
