Embark on the adventure of the Imster Höhenweg - a high alpine ridge hike that requires excellent fitness, surefootedness and a head for heights. The trail is very steep in parts and even secured by ropes in some places. With a challenging ascent of 1762 vertical meters over 13 kilometers, this is not a hike for beginners. Enjoy the breathtaking views from the Laggers to the Pleiskopf before descending to the Muttekopfhütte and returning to the lift via the Drischlsteig.
