Winter hike to the Giogo dei Prati ridge

An easy winter walking tour in the Sarentino Alps leads from the Sarentino Mountain Hut to the Giogo dei Prati ridge

If you only have time half a day but nevertheless want to do a beautiful winter walk in the Sarentino Alps, this walking tour is a great hint. By car we go to Sarentino village (Sarnthein) and there further towards the district Prati (Auen). We leave our car at the Sarentino Mountain Hut (Sarner Skihütte, 1,611 m a.s.l.) which is closed in winter. Here we follow the path no. 2 which leads us towards the Malga dei Prati hut (Auener Alm) at 1,799 m a.s.l.

Shortly before we arrive at the hut, the path becomes steeper but half of the way is already done. Proceeding along the same path we reach the Giogo dei Prati ridge (Auener Jöchl) 90 minutes later.

For those who want to carry on there is the possibility to proceed to the so-called "Stone Men", this takes another 20 minutes. The way back is done along the same route.
