Hochgerach, 1.985m | Thüringerberg

From the center of Thüringerberg, the trail leads over the Außerberg and the Kapiescha district up to the Inner Alpila Alpe. From here it is still about 400 m of ascent to the summit of Hochgerach. A head for heights and surefootedness are required for the ascent of the summit. The descent leads the first part over the same path and then over the Äußere Alpila Alpe and the Gampelin Alpe. Via the Außerberg back to the starting point in Thüringerberg.

Author's recommendation

This tour requires a head for heights and surefootedness, but the mountain panorama is breathtaking.
