This stage starts at the eagle’s nest of the Karwendel, leads across the Lafatscher Joch and ends at the Hallerangerhaus hut with panoramic views over the Halltal valley.

Stage description:
After spending the night at the Bettelwurfhütte hut, the eagle’s nest of the Karwendel mountains, you take trail 222 back to the Lafatscher Joch (2081 m). Once there, you turn on to trail 223 heading north. As part of the famous Adlerweg long-distance hiking trail, this guides you between the Lafatscher, Roßkopf and Speckkarspitze mountains on a continuous descent to the Hallerangerhaus hut.

Good to know:
The trail through the blasted clearing from the Hallerangerhaus to the Lafatscher Joch is a typical mule track. This leads between the Lafatscher Roßkopf, the Kleiner Lafatscher and the Speckkarspitze mountains, thus connecting the Halleranger to the Halltal valley and the Bettelwurfhütte to the Hallerangerhaus.
