Family hike along the Taser High Route

This pleasant walk proceeds from the Taser Alpine Hut along the slope of the Montescena mountain (Schennaberg, in German).

The Taser Cable Car starts between Scena and Verdines and takes us up to 1,450 m a.s.l. There’s the Taser Alpine Hut amidst the alpine meadows, known especially among families. This beautiful place and centre of the hamlet of Montescena offers a restaurant and a high-rope course as well as playgrounds.

The Taser High Route (Taser Höhenweg, in German) connects the hamlets of Videgg and Talle on Mount Cervina to Falzeben (Avelengo). We decide to hike the section towards south to the Gsteier tavern and head to the asphalt road leading to the Greitererhof farm. Further on, the trail follows a pleasant and mostly flat hiking path through the coniferous forest.

The highlight of this tour is - of course - the lovely landscape characterised by small brooks in the valleys, beautiful flower meadows and the view on Merano and surroundings. After 4 km we reach the crossroads with the path no. 24 (Mt. Ivigna wind gap). The trail leads us downhill to the Gsteier tavern and the intermediate station of the Mt. Ivigna Cable Car (Merano 2000). At this point we decide to turn back to the Taser Alpine Hut along the same route.
