Winter hike to the Melago Mountain Hut

In the upmost Valle Lunga valley, at the feet of the Weißkugel mountain with its glaciers, the Melago Mountain Hut is located at the edge of a cross country ski track and a winter hiking path. Ideal situated to enjoy a beautiful winter day.

Our winter hike starts in Melago, the last hamlet in the Valle Lunga valley, at about 1,900 m asl. Here the road ends, at the bus stop a parking space is located. We walk through the small village into the valley, after the farms we continue along the winter path which runs parallel to the cross country ski track.

It is a comfortable wide path through the snowy high valley, we cross the bridge over the Karlinbach creek to walk further at the edge of the forest (path no. 5). The path is flat, only just before the mountain hut we have to manage a short and easy ascent. The hut offers delicious traditional cuisine. We decide to carry on walking up the quiet valley for about 1 km before we start our way back.
