AdviceAscending the mountain, the hike leads you to the so-called Schlafhäuser (sleeping houses), which the farmers used as shelters and for cooking when the hay was harvested. The route continues high above the Reintal valley, crossing the southern slope of the Mosstock peak. Dwarf shrub heathland, marvellous pines and characteristic highland moors can be found along the way. Blooming alpine flowers invite you to take a rest and to marvel at the stunning views, reaching from the close glaciers of the Rieserferner mountain range to the Dolomites in the distance.
