Hike of the three pastures of Avelengo

An extended, but easy walking tour on the high plateau between Avelengo and Verano, leading us to the Leadner, Verano and Wurzer Mountain Huts.

This nice walking tour takes us about 14 km across forests and meadows in the south of Avelengo (Hafling). Slightly above the village, in between of the green meadows, the path no. 16 branches off, leading us the way to the Malga Leadner mountain hut (Leadner Alm). The wide path leads through the forest, then the way proceeds slightly downwards to the alpine pasture.

After a short stop at the mountain hut, we proceed via the forested road, paralleling the path no. 11, to the Malga di Verano mountain hut (Vöraner Alm). Now we walk the way up, from 1,500 m to 1,900 m a.s.l. If you would like to, you can also take the cut-off (11A). Now we reach the highest point of the walk - the sun-drenched meadows of the Malga di Verano (possibility to stop).

The way back to Avelengo is a little shorter, as we walk along the path no. 2A across the forest. On a clearing there's the 3rd mountain hut, the Malga Wurzer (Wurzer Alm, 1,700 m a.s.l.). This circular route can be walked almost the whole year round, in winter it can be done as snow-shoe tour.
