Mountain tour to the Monte Gruppo

A very beautiful hiking tour leading from Terento to the peak of the Monte Gruppo, passing the Lago di Pausa Mountain Hut.

After the village Terento (Terenten), we turn into the road which branches off from a sharp bend and leads into the Winnebachtal valley. We leave our car at the parking space at the end of the road. From here, we hike on a broad forest trail towards the Rifugio Lago di Pausa mountain hut (Tiefrastenhütte). After about half an hour we pass the Astner Bergalm mountain hut and soon afterwards the valley station of the material cable car of the Lago di Pausa Mountain Hut.

Hiking upwards on a serpentines trail, we finally reach the valley end with its impressive waterfall. The trail gets continuously narrower and partly also steeper before we reach the "Tiefrastenhüttl", a very idyllic mountain hut. After another rather steep section we arrive at the Lago di Pausa Mountain Hut and Lake Pausa after about 2 hours of hiking. After a short rest we continue our tour on trails no. 21 and 24 towards the 2,809 m high peak of Mt. Gruppo (Hochgrubbachspitze).

Arrived at the mountain ridge, we have to be careful and even use our hands several times without real climbing. Finally, we reach the summit cross and a huge stone man on the peak of Mount Gruppo and are very impressed by the view of the near peaks of the Zillertal Alps. After a short rest, we hike back on the same way and enjoy a tasty lunch at the Lago di Pausa Mountain Hut, which also offers overnight accommodation.
