The hike impressively exhibits the diversity of the Stubai mountains unlike any other. Striking rock formations, deep crevasses, Stubai’s highest 3000-meter-peaks in sight and plenty of "wild water".

Author’s recommendation

It is recommended to use the free buses, because the endpoint Grawa alp is about a 10 minute drive away from the starting point, the bottom station Gletscherbahn.

Destination

Grawa waterfall with Grawa alp

Turn-by-turn directions

After the comfortable ascent (FREE with the STUBAI SUPER CARD) by gondola cableway to reach the middle station of the Stubai Glacier. Behind the building via a bridge we cross the stram Fernaubach and climb up over boulders towards to turn Trögler (very good mountaineering experience necessary) or via the Peiljoch. The road over the Peiljoch is steep but provided with good safety ropes (about 1.5 hours). The simpler version leads straight to Peiljoch. Here you can enjoy ravishing views of the Stubai Glacier world. The descent takes us first in serpentines, then through ice moranie of glacier Sulzenau in about 1 hour to Sulzenau hut. From there, after a retreat, the trail leads down to the valley. The perfect finish provides the Grawa alp directly overlooking the Grawa waterfall!
