Start der 1. Etappe ist bei der Gehsteig Alm oberhalb von Tumpen. Dort gelangt man mit dem lokalen Hüttentaxi hin und erspart sich so viele Kilometer und Höhenmeter auf Forstwegen. Von der Gehtsteig Alm geht es links in einem deutlich schmäleren Bergweg weiter bergan. An der Gabelung links (dem Wegweiser in Richtung Erlanger Hütte folgen) in einer ansteigenden Querung über eine breite Rinne zu einem Bergkessel. Von dort führt ein wunderschöner, gleichmäßiger Höhenweg in Richtung Hütte. Im letzten Stück geht es nochmals bergan und kurz vor der Hütte ist noch ein Felsaufschwung zu meistern. Dieser ist allerdings mit Eisenketten entschärft. An der Hütte angekommen, genießt man das einzigartige Flair und lässt den Abend ausklingen. Ein Besuch am Wetter-See gleich oberhalb der Hütte darf natürlich nicht fehlen.

 

 

Author’s recommendation

Der Wettersee oberhalb der Hütte darf auf keinen Fall ausgelassen werden. Wagemutige Wanderer und Naturfreunde wagen den Sprung in den kühlen Bergsee - ein Erlebnis das man so schnell nicht vergisst, mit Erfrischungs- und Regenerationswirkung inklusive.
