The cross-border sheep drive over the main ridge of the Ötztal Alps is one of the outstanding features of our region. This hike takes you from Vent at 1900 m to Hochjoch Hospiz at 2413 m. On the way your hiking guide Alfons will tell you more about old pasture and grazing rights and many interesting details on the tradition of sheep drives in this area.
