Stages of the Hike
Up to 50 people spend a full day in the mountains and start their hike towards Niederes Tal.
The walking route leads in several stages into Bartebme area, past a prehistoric stone cave and Spiegelalm (located opposite) to the vantage point near the river mouth of Diembach brook. Rest stop at Kaseralm, refreshment at the spring, further on to the old shepherds hut and then to Martin Busch Hütte. From there across the footbridge of Niederjochbach brook to an ancient rockslide area at Samoar. Here is the last scene in a hidden idyll at 2600 m above sea level.
Back to Martin Busch Hütte, a stone house dating back to the heyday of alpinism. Rest stop, food, silence. From here you can return back to the valley on the same day or stay overnight. 400 altitude meters above you will find scenic Brizzisee mountain lake in the Sömen area. A real Alpine diamond that collects ice-cold spring water coming down from Kreuzspitze peak in a small basin and invites you to enjoy a refreshing swim.
