Hiking to the alpine pastures of Monte Cervina

The highest mountain of the Sarentino Alps boasts lovely alpine pastures, which are definitely worth seeing.

Our hike starts at Saltusio, a village in Val Passiria. This is where we take the Monte Cervina funicular, taking us to the hamlet of Talle di Sopra at 1,375 m a.s.l. From this point we proceed by funicular to the mountain station Klammeben (1,980 m a.s.l.). At the mountain station our hike definitely starts on foot.

We follow the path no. 40 and walk slightly downwards to the mountain refuge Punta Cervina (Hirzerhütte, 1,986 m a.s.l.) and the lovely Tallner alpine pasture. We proceed our hike upwards to the old Tallner refuge at 2,017 m a.s.l. and walk on path no. 1, across lovely alpine pastures and a larch forest. After about one hour of walking we reach the Hintereggalm alpine pasture (1,990 m a.s.l.) and finally the last refuge included in our hike, which is the Mahdalm (1,990 m a.s.l.).

We proceed our hike on trail no. 2B, taking us back to the Tallner alpine pasture and further on back to the starting point at the mountain station of the funicular.
