Aschbach, a fraction of Algund, is a small mountain village at 1,360 meters. It is located southwest of Algund and can be reached by cable car in only 7 minutes. In a circular hike you will discover the Naturnser Alm (mountain hut) and its surroundings at 2.000 m, located below the Mount Guardia Alta at the eastern foothills of the Ortles-Cevedale Group.
The Aschbach/Rio Lagundo cable car takes you from Rabland/Rablà to the mountain village of Aschbach/Rio Lagundo, the starting point of the hike.
