With its 3,507 metres, the Pan di Zucchero (Zuckerhütl) is the highest mountain in the Stubai Alps. Its German name comes from its graceful shape, which resembles that of a sugar (Zucker) hat (hütl). From the summit, the view extends over the Stubai Alps to the Großglockner, to the south as far as the Dolomites and to the west, you can see the Ortler and Bernina.
On this landscaped tour we hike through all alpine vegetation zones up to the vastness of the glaciers. A special experience on the exposed Becherhaus is the sunrise.
The starting point is the Timmelsbrücke bridge in Schönau/Val Passiria. The trail leads past the Timmelsalm, Gr. Lago Nero, the Schwarzwandscharte and the Übeltalferner to the Becherhaus 3195 m, the highest alpine hut in South Tyrol.
On the second day, we cross the Cima Prete and descend a little on the Stubai side to the ridge leading to the Pan di Zucchero (Zuckerhütl). Through this ridge and in easy boulder climbing we reach the summit. The route requires an ascent up to II degrees of difficulty and firn passages up to 35 degrees.
Difference in height and duration:
Ascent to the refuge approx. 1400 m approx. 6 hours
Refuge - summit approx. 600 m approx. 4 hours
Also possible as a 1-day tour approx. 1850 m.
For less experienced hikers the Cima Libera (Wilde Freiger) is a good choice. (approx. 300 m and 2 hours from the Glass Hut)
