Tips and hintsMore Information about hiking and tours in the Ötzvalley under following link:
From there it takes approx. 1 hour to the Lenzenalm. It goes comfortably up a wide path through the forest. Always slightly uphill, but not very strenuous. The last ascent to the hut is a little steeper, but from there you can enjoy the view of Gurgl.
From the Lenzenalm you walk briefly through the forest - over alpine meadows to the nearby Nedersee (2435m, short detour possible) - on a very steep path via switchbacks you reach the northeast ridge. Over rough stone blocks it goes either on the ridge (marked) or in the east flank (also marked) to the summit cross.
The descent from the Nederkogl is the same route as the ascent!
Public-transport-friendlyTravel safe and comfortable with the train to the Ötztal Bahnhof train station. Last stop and exit point is the train station Ötztal Bahnhof. Afterwards you can travel smoothly and quick with the public transport or our local taxi companies through the valley to your desired destination.
