This hike at the foot of the southern Stubai Alps is less visited even though it has a very attractive landscape and leads through an untouched mountain world. From the parking area at the Mining World Museum walk on path no. 28 up to the managed mountain pasture Moarerbergalm (Poschhaus). Leave the path no. 28 at the foot of the rock face towards St. Martin at the Schneeberg and walk at the right side, where you reach path no. 33 to the Moarer Eget lakes in about 1 ½ hours. At the pass Egetjoch (2639m) you reach the highest point of this hike and walk downhill either left past the Eget lakes (no. 33a) or directly down to the lake Trüber See. You need approx. 2 hours for the descent down to the valley. Condition and surefootedness necessary! (Fr-Su there is also the possibility to go up to the Moarerbergalm by bus. Reservation at the Mining World Museum – Tel. 0472656364).

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point for the tour is the little village of Masseria/Maiern at the end of the Ridnauntal valley. From the Mining Museum car park take trail no. 28 up to the working Moarerbergalm Alpine farm. After approx. 1½ hours, you reach the first glacial lake. You should allow about 7 – 9 hours for the complete tour. If you want to shorten your day by about 2 hours, a weekend bus service gives you a less strenuous option for reaching the Moarerbergalm Alpine farm. For this hike fitness and sure-footedness are essential.
