3 PEAKS TOUR
3 peaks in the Hohe Tauern National Park
29.07. - 03.08.2018For: 5 daysPrice: 745 € per person
Day 1: After an equipment check we will hike up to the Essener Rostocker Hütte (2208m) where we can spend some time getting to know the surrounding area and acclimatising. Bags can be transported part of the way by lift.
Day 2: The first part of the day is spent hiking back up the flat valley towards the Grossen Geiger (3350m). Just below the summit we will traverse onto the glacier from where we will steeply ascend to the summit before returning to the Essener Rostocker hut.
Day 3: Today we will enjoy a beautiful walk through the Hohe Tauern National Park, heading up towards the Türml Joch and down to the Johannis Hut where we will take a good lunch break before ascending up to the Defregger Haus (2963m) where we will spend the night.
Day 4: We will aim to climb the second of our peaks, the Grossvenediger (3662m). The route takes us from the hut on a narrow path to the start of the glacier, where we will rope together. Passing deep crevasses we will ascend to the high plateau and to the summit from where we can enjoy amazing views of Grossglockner and the Dolomites.
After returning to the Defregger house we will pick up the rest of our gear and carry on down towards the valley.
Day 5: After spending a comfortable night down in the valley we will walk up to the Stüdel Hut (2802m) and on to the Adlersruhe (3451m). Bags can be transported part of the way by lift.
Day 6: Climb Grossglockner (3798m) the last one of our 3 peaks. We start by trekking over snow fields and ice and gets steeper as we go along. When we get to the main ridge we will scramble up rocks to the highest point in Austria and look back at all the summits we have climbed over the last few days. We will return to the Stüdel Hut (2802m) and descend to Kals am Grossglockner (1900m) where we finish our tour.
Highlights: 3 x 3000m summits in 6 days in the Hohe Tauern National Park
