Tettensjoch: High above the Tux Valley

Description

An expedition through the vegetation stages in the high mountains.

From Elsegg we follow the course of the stream and hike to one of the most beautiful alpine pastures in the Zillertal, the Elsalm. There, at a vantage point, we enjoy the magnificent view over the Tux Pre-Alps. From here, the trail leads us high above the alpine pasture to the Tettensjoch (2,276 m). Block glaciers, moraines and a double ridge characterize the landscape. On the descent to the Löschbodenalm and HöllensteinhĂŒtte (1,710 m) we cross the Hochalm, the dwarf shrub belt and reach the natural timberline with larch, Swiss stone pine and spruce. The last stage leads us along an old hiking trail to Klausboden and back to Lanersbach. Surely an exciting hike for every mountain enthusiast and nature photographer.
