Round tour on the Gabler Path

This round tour leads us across three peaks of the Plose, combining easy and medium-difficulty paths and promising a magnificent view on the surrounding area

The cable car takes us from Sant'Andrea near Bressanone up to the Plose mountain. The first section of the path runs leisurely along the "Woody Walk" - an easy panoramic path on the edge of the forest, which is particularly enjoyed by families with children. We follow the signpost to the Rossalm, a well-established mountain inn. From there we enter the Dolomites Panorama Path, which ascends gently through the heath landscape towards east.

After a loop at the foot of Mt. Gabler we reach the turnoff at Guflanegg. Here we take the path that leads directly to Mt. Gabler. Step by step we crest the grass-covered mountain top. The summit cross is at 2,575 m a.s.l. and offers a great view on the surroundings. Now follows the short, steep descent on path no. 7 down to the Gabler wind gap. From there the beautiful panoramic path leads us to Mt. Pfannspitz, the next summit of our route. We have our lunch break at the Malga Pfannspitz mountain hut below - then we continue along the ridge to the Plose Mountain Hut, which is not far from the summit of Monte Telegrafo.

During the whole hike the view towards the Dolomites with the Odle peaks and the Sasso Putia is particularly impressive. The descent down to the mountain station of the Plose Cable Car is done on one of the paths that start directly at the Plose Mountain Hut.
