Rodengo Alpine Pasture hike

The highland of the Rodengo and Luson Alpine Pastures turns into a sea of flowers in early summer - ideal for a comfortable hike with several rest points

The mountain road proceeds from Rodengo up to the Zumis parking space, starting point of our hike. We follow the Confin Path (n° 4), a wide path which proceeds through the forest up to the alpine meadows. At the Roner mountain hut we take the marker n° 2 which leads us to the Pianer Cross Chapel and further to the Starkenfeld mountain hut (also called Pluna mountain hut).

Now in June the landscape is covered by a carpet of flowers. On the horizon the summits of the Dolomites are visible in the south and in the north the ones of the Zillertal Alps. Those who want to carry on walking can hike along the path n° 67 to the Giogo d’Asta ridge at 2,200 m a.s.l. (approx. 1 hour from the Starkenfeld hut and about 230 more m in altitude difference).

But we decide to walk back after a break at the mountain hut. Therefore we follow the path n° 68 to the Rastner mountain hut and then we walk along the path n° 68B across the high fens, an untouched area of the Rodengo Alp. Via the Pianer Cross and the Roner hut we come back to Zumis again where our tour ends.
