SPELLBOUND BY MAJESTIC ZUCKERHÜTL
From the hut you walk down Windachtal valley until a trail branches off to the left, towards the rushing Gaiskarbach mountain brook. Continue across the moraine of famous Pfaffenferner glacier and – steeply ascending in part – through boulders and rubble to Gamsplatzl area. There is a short section with fixed cables for your safety. This small plateau provides marvelous views of the Stubai Alps with Zuckerhütl at 3507 meters and the breathtaking Ötztal Alps.The trail switchbacks steeply down to lake Triebenkarsee below the glaciers nout of Triebenkarlasferner. The next stretch is easy and has only little elevation change. The trail crosses the precipitous slopes of Scheiblehn area and then gently climbs up to Siegerlandhütte.
