Guided hike in the Zillertal Alps Nature Park to the Tettensjoch.

Expedition through the stages of vegetation in alpine landscapes - guided hiking tour with the Zillertal alps nature park  

From Elsegg we hike following the course of the stream to one of the most beautiful alpine pastures in the Zillertal, the Elsalm. There we enjoy the magnificent view over the Tux Pre-Alps from a vantage point. From here the path leads us high above the alpine pasture to the Tettensjoch (2,276m). Block glaciers, moraines and a double ridge shape the landscape. On the descent to the Löschbodenalm and Höllensteinhütte (1,710m) we cross the Hochalm, the dwarf shrub belt and reach the natural tree line with larch, stone pine and spruce. The last stage takes us over an old hiking trail to Klausboden and back to Lanersbach. An exciting hike for every mountain fanatic and nature photographer.
