Aschbach - Naturnser Alm
This circular hike between 1,350 and 2,050 m asl leads us to the Malga di Naturno mountain hut and on the Monte San Vigilio.
Today we’d like to discover the Malga di Naturno mountain hut and its surroundings at 2,000 m asl, located below the Mount Guardia Alta at the eastern foothills of the Ortles-Cevedale Group.
The small hamlet of Riolagundo on the Montetramontana (1,340 m asl) is the starting point of our hike, accessible by the Riolagundo Cable Car starting from Saring near Rablà.
Walk from Aschbach towards the Naturns Alm (1.5 hours).
Take path # 9A via the Rauhjoch and then path # 9 (beside the Rauhe Bühl) until you come to the Staffels Alm (1,875 metres).
If you are still keen to walk on, you can make your way to the Hochwart (2,608 metres).
From there, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view all over South Tyrol. This tour can only be undertaken on a good day. Good walking conditions are needed.
Return journey on path # 9 until you come to the Vigiljoch. Turn left and take path # 28 to Aschbach.
