Trail description

From the village of Kaltenbrunn in the Kaunertal Valley there is a road leading directly to the Falkaunsalm hut. Walkers can park there and pay a visit to the hut to try sample of the delicious mountain cheese. The hike then begins along a trail heading in a south-easterly direction through a dense forest, first downhill and then uphill. After reaching the Gallruthalm at 1,980 metres above sea level, another good place to stop for a rest, it is time for the exciting downhill section through the "Gallruthstollen" tunnel next to the Gallruthbach stream. This tunnel was used many years ago to transport water and takes around 30 minutes to walk through. The final section leads along a path in a north-westerly direction gently uphill to the Falkaunsalm.
