A gorgeous walk in the high border mountains, most of which is actually in Italy, on the southern flanks of the range.

8 days (55km), or less if you start at an intermediate roadhead. 

A hut-to-hut walk, so heavy loads don’t need to be carried, but a demanding walk, with exposed (cabled) sections, long climbs from huts to passes and a total ascent said to be around 5,000m.

Relatively unknown, so expect fewer people.

This can be tough walking in remote mountains with uncertain weather. Come fully prepared,

Have a look at TripAdvisor – you should get good, current views on the area.

Trekking in the Zillertal Alps – Allan Hartley for Cicerone is the book for the Hohenweg and the South Tyrol Tour. As usual, inspiring books (indeed, Walkopedia was alerted to some of these walks by them), packed with valuable information, including good detail on the routes. Recommended. Find relevant books on Amazon.
