Hike from Casere to the Malga Lahner mountain hut

A real hiking highlight in the back Valle Aurina valley: Only few hours of walking time amidst a storybook landscape lead us to the little mountain hut, located in a coomb

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 Brigata Tridentina Mountain Hut (Birnlückenhütte, located 400 m higher) until our destination, the Lahner Mountain Hut (Lahneralm). For the way back we take the same route.

During our hike we also pass the Holy Spirit Pilgrimage Church, a holy place surrounded by alpine meadows, woods and the peaks of the main Alpine ridge. In short, this is a beautiful walking tour for the whole family, perfect to enjoy quiet and serenity in nature.

For the more pretentious hikers, who want to walk until the Brigata Tridentina Mountain Hut, the beautiful Lahner Mountain Hut is ideal to take a break, straight beneath Mt. Vetta d'Italia (2,911 m a.s.l.) in the High Tauern, one of the most northern summits of Italy.
