Hiking day with the well-known South Tyrolean extreme mountaineer Hanspeter Eisendle:
Section of the Ortler Höhenweg In the Face of King Ortler

We travel by coach through the Vinschgau Valley and reach the starting point of the hike. From Laganda (1,700 m), a hamlet just before Sulden, we first climb slightly uphill, then almost level, on forest paths until we reach the fork that leads up to the Stierberg Alm. Walk along the steep but not exactly long section of path that follows in the forest in the direction of the Stierberg Alm. Past ancient, gnarled tree formations, with the Ortler (3,905 m), the highest peak in the Eastern Alps, in view, the trail leads to the Kälber Alm (2,300 m). Shortly before the alpine pasture, the trail branches off in the direction of Schönegg. We follow this path upwards and reach the most exciting part of the hike (2,500 m). After an extensive rest and food from the rucksack, we follow the "Eselsteig" (donkey trail), which is now somewhat exposed, requires surefootedness and leads through the steep flanks of the Schöneggspitze into the Zaytal. We descend to Sulden via the path coming down from the Düsseldorfer Hütte, following the course of the Zaytal stream.
