Cascading waterfalls, rushing streams, towering seracs and views of glistening glaciers. Welcome to the Eagle Walk in East Tirol! Trailhead of stage 1 is at Prägraten/Ströden, close to the spectacular Umbalfälle waterfalls. Starting under a canopy of ancient larch trees, the trail begins its long and winding way up the mountain. As it breaks out of the woods, keep an eye out for marmots which can often be seen here on a sunny day. Walking past the Göriach Ochsner Hütte, the route continues to the Essener-Rostocker Hütte that provides the perfect rest stop for hikers. Follow the "Schweriner Weg" trail beneath the Kleiner Geiger mountain on your way to the Türml col. Rock cairns as trail markers will show you the way to Johannis Hütte, the oldest mountain refuge in the Eastern Alps. The hut dates back to 1857 and was completely refurbished in 1999. It's a little long and a little challenging getting to the Johannis Hütte, but the scenic rewards are more thn worth it.
Eagle View ·In the realm of “Three-Thousanders”, mountains over 3,000 metres in elevation, hikers can enjoy some of the most stunning views in the Alps. From the Essener-Rostocker Hütte you can see ten towering peaks topped with ice that glistens in the sun. The Johannis Hütte hut has vistas of the majestic and impressive Großvenediger mountain that will keep you mesmerised and captivated for many minutes.
Eagle Kick ·The 2,844-metre Türml is a peak on the Dorferkamm ridge that is accessed with a 30-minute climb from the Türml col via a via ferrata graded C (intermediate). The descent down the mountain’s south flank has some technical sections, assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables, and views of the Venediger Mountains that will inspire you.
