Hike to Malga Farmazon in the Tessa Mountain Group

In the Farmazon Valley, a side valley in Alta Val Passiria, the Farmazon Hut is located at 1,890 m a.s.l. A forest road connects it with the hamlet of Außerhütt, which lies along the road to Plan.

An easy and leisurely hike takes us from the car park at the Außerhütt bus stop to the Faramazon Valley in about 90 minutes. The route leads through the Hütterwald forest, which is already in the Gruppo di Tessa Nature Park. In total, we cover about 420 metres in altitude over a distance of almost 4 km. After about an hour of climbing through the forest, we reach the last section of the road above the Farmazon Valley. Here we enjoy a view on the valley and the surrounding mountains, from the Monteneve at the Passo del Rombo in the north to the nearby peaks of the Tessa Mountain Group in the south.

We have now left the forest behind us and hike through the heath landscape characterised by alpine roses the last stretch to the Farmazon Alm (also: Formazon Alm). The sunny terrace of the mountain inn is not only a nice place to relax, but also the traditional cuisine invites you to enjoy. After all, we have also brought along a bit of hunger. Later, we take the same path back to the starting point.
