Falkomai Mountain Huts and Alpenrosenweg path

A mountain lake, alpine pastures, panoramic views and a varied landscape make up the charm of this hiking tour in the Val d’Ultimo mountains.

To reach the starting point, we follow the road sign to S. Elena in S. Pancrazio (or Santa Valburga). The curvy mountain road leads via the mountain hamlet of Mariolberg to the car park in the forest before S. Elena, where we park our car. We start along the forest road (path no. 9A) to the Mariolberger Alm mountain hut (also called "Falkomai Kuhalm"). Past the hut, we stay on the path that leads along the Kirchenbach stream deeper into the valley until we reach a bridge, where we follow path no. 3 towards the Äußere Falkomai Mountain Hut. Here follows the steepest part of the hike - it is an ascent of almost 300 m to the Leger Alm.

Arrived at the top, the "Alpenrosenweg" path leads us a little easier on to the Falkomai alpine pastures. The high route runs alternately through the forest and through the alpine heath landscape to the Äußere Falkomai Alm. We continue along the same path to the beautiful Falkomai Lake and further on, already descending, to the Innere Falkomai Alm, which is located at the end of the valley. The above mentioned mountain huts offer food and drink. Back to the starting point, we take path 3A, which follows the course of the Kirchenbach stream and leads to the Mariolberger Alm. There we follow again the forest road back to the car park.

Please note: Those who make the hike around the end of June can enjoy the splendour of the blooming alpine roses, which turn whole mountain slopes red. After Lake Falkomai the trail leads briefly through rocky terrain - difficult sections are secured with steel ropes.
