A family tour for higher expectations

The "Latemar Höhenweg", which links the area of the Eggentaler mountain pastures with the Karer Pass region, is one of the most rewarding enterprises in the region of the Eggentaler mountains. You start the western section of the route, from Satteljoch to Erzlahnkar, at the top station of the Oberholzlift. The descent to Obereggen represents a dream tour on clear, sunny days!

Over grassed slopes to the north, down to a junction. Straight on down into a green hollow and up out of it to the left, to a large terraced meadow. Down over it and as far as a junction directly above the Oberholzlift – mountain station.
