Description

The Pizol Glacier is the remnant of a cirque glacier, now only about 400 m long. It is situated below the peak of the Pizol.

The route to Pizol peak is provided with new signposts. It starts at Pizol Hut, which can be reached by gondola and chairlift. The ascent first leads up to Wildseelücke where Wildsee lake is visible and with breathtaking views of Pizol peak and the Graue Hörner. The trail then continues along Wildsee lake in the direction of Pizolsattel.

The altitude difference is 620 m and the challenging mountain tour from Pizol Hut to the peak takes about 2 hours. For safety reasons, due to falling rocks, the trail in the cliffs was relocated and a new route was built. The mountain route is provided with a steel cable serving as a handhold. There are fantastic views of Valenserberg along the way. This is a tour for experienced mountain hikers only. It is absolutely necessary to be surefooted and without fear of heights.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
