Winter hiking path and sledge run Malga dei Buoi

In the heart of the Vallelunga, a little side valley branches off, where a true paradise can be found: the Malga dei Buoi mountain hut.

Starting point of our hike is Caprone (Kapron) in the Vallelunga valley in the Val Venosta, where we follow the marker no. 14 towards the Malga dei Buoi mountain hut (Ochsenberger Alm).

After the first metres a little path branches from the marked route, it is a shortcut up to the hut but it is very steep. For us it seems a bit difficult to image a little paradise here, as the first ascent is quite steep and nothing special. But after about half an hour of walking, we are surrounded by an inherent natural beauty, which is really amazing.

The Malga dei Buoi with the St. Wendelin Chapel is located at 2,160 m a.s.l. amidst a wonderful little valley. For our way back there are two possibilities now, either on foot again or by sledge.
