Hike from Casere to the Malga Lahner hut

A real hiking highlight in the back Val Aurina valley: only few hours of walking time amidst a storybook landscape lead us to the little mountain hut, located in a coomb between shining mountain peaks and clear streams.

Starting point of our hike today is the parking space in Casere (Kasern) above the village of Predoi (Prettau). The route is easy to explain: we follow the path no. 13 towards the Rif. Tridentina (Birnlückenhütte) until our destination, the Malga Lahner mountain hut. For the way back we take the same route. During our hike we also pass the Church of the Holy Spirit, a holy place surrounded by alpine meadows, woods and the peaks of the main Alpine ridge.

In short, this is a beautiful and easy walking tour for the whole family, perfect to escape from everyday life and to enjoy quiet and serenity in nature. For the more pretentious hikers, who want to walk until the 400 m higher located Rif. Brigata Tridentina, the beautiful Malga Lahner mountain hut is ideal to take a break, straight beneath the Vetta d’Italia mountain in the High Tauern, one of the most northern summits of Italy.
