General:

High Altitude Trail Run path 2 is relatively long trail crosses the Alps and Dolomites from Austria to Italy. The trail begins in Innsbruck to Austria and ends at pltera (Feltre) in Italy. The trail consists of 3 tracks and can be divided into three stages, each stage has special characteristics:
1) first stage: Wipp Valley High Altitude Trail from Innsbruck (Austria) Austria-Italy border (5 days)
2) stage two: High Altitude Trail Run from Italy to Stop border city or Bressanone by theme are:
3) third stage: High Altitude Trail 2-Dolomite AV2
From Stop to Feltre (13 days)

The entire route is not easy, daily height differences at least 9 days around 1000 meters and 1000 meters increase and decrease more every day.
Basically the track built on walk from cabin to cabin (each day begins and ends in the cabin) but we're not fans of the huts and did it with tent and everything that entails.


Hiking season:

Hiking season is from mid-late June to mid-September. However, of course every season allow mountains to experience stormy weather, should be ready for anything.
The opening season of ה"בקתות" (some really hotels): 20 June-20 September. Some more detailed information in the attachment.



Degree of difficulty:

This is one of the most demanding tracks of Europe including the number and types of sharp declines close to 45% and in some cases even more. In ideal conditions will route to a medium difficulty, but in rainy weather, winds or fog conditions, walking more difficult and sometimes dangerous. During the runway not less than 30 lines cross the mountains.

In terms of cover, the beginning of the track (in Brixen) the path up and down from one mountain to the Valley and beyond, while the AV2 keeps at least some of the time at altitude, mostly above the tree line. Alpine landscape varies a lot along the way: in Austria more rounded green and serrated and Dolomites. In General, in the first part and the second has more water flows in streams and the third part more.

In the first part and the second also has a lot less travellers!

Language: mainly German (Italian section too!). As you descend farther south in Italy speak some Italian. There is also a local dialect or Ladin Ladis is Italian.



Technical data
Starting point: Innsbruck, Austria

End point: Feltre Italy

Length of track: approximately 360 km

The highest point in the peak Wilde Kreuzspitze
3132 m height.

Daily maximum type: 1470 m (Thursday)

Maximum daily decline: 2070 m (day 8)

Several days of walking to complete the route: 22 days

Section schedules along the path:
On this occasion, a few words about the times that appear in the book (I made a goldsmith): in the first part and the second time I meant to people in great shape or dragging small and case. If you with full equipment and tent can add at least 30-50% the times listed or rely on excellent timings on the signs are pretty accurate. In the third part time quite matched our rhythm going and we even faster.

Marking:
The trail is mostly marked in red stripes, d (but the problem is that most of the trails in the area are marked in the same way). An excellent attachment except where an unmarked path.


How to reach us:

Flies routes to Innsbruck (via Vienna). It is possible to fly everywhere in Austria to reach Innsbruck by train.
We flew to Munich (cheapest) and got back at the end of the runway.
At the end of May to return to Feltre from Innsbruck, Munich by train or fly back to Verona. Easy exit from Feltre is Trento Trento. In a combined bus/train ticket (cheap!)


Topographic maps of the route, in order:
1. Rooms 1:50000 map No. 36 covers the entire first segment
2. Tabacco 1:25000 map No. 37
3. Tabacco 1:25000 map No. 30
4. Tabacco 1:25000 map No. 7
5. Tabacco 1:25000 map No. 15
6. Tabacco 1:25000 map No. 22
2. Tabacco 1:25000 map No. 23

(The book also says need map No. 6, but is not required).
I bought all the maps in Amazon Germany www.amazon.de
I think the map (compass) are required on this track!


A few words about camping along the route:
Camping is allowed anywhere outside the nature reserve, a national park. Within the reserve is prohibited and forbidden to light a fire.

In the add attachment places recommended for camping, as well as other information necessary for this type of travellers (travellers book cabins): where there is water and what water problems have sections, location and opening hours of shops to stock up food and gas etc. Also added amendments to the original story (I tried to keep the original version, what I thought was wrong and deserves to be deleted appears faded, my additions are highlighted in Bold)

In short, the attachment Europa_High_landscape there are many more details.

Beautiful and breathtaking views.

Last week I did 2 days in Julian Alps (Slovenia) and for a moment I thought you were in the same places.

Perhaps noting here in terms of the diversity, of Israel have I think there is unmatched.

I have a backpack size M Blackwood Greogory's that something around 70-75 + 20.
It's an area I think 60 liters.
Depends on what you call to obtain. Really there's only gas stores midway in briksen.
The exact details are in the attached file. You should read and everything will be clear.

Plan (currently it's a half-dream, it seems natural after ichsha the gr11 I did last summer) to do for this summer (August/September, don't know if the whole or only a part). If anyone wants to join- ravid_bh@yahoo.com.

Well last year I started little dream in November and it came true. I wish.

Anyone who writes me questions via email on this Trek (and AV2, Pyrenees etc.) answer all blithely but because they're interesting on other Forum (I see that repeat questions) please ask them here (rshro for the relevant message), that's the Forum!

Incidentally, to draw a map in scale 1:25, 000 with trails – it beyond my powers.
That's said. Write a post where to buy.

I have 8-9 days to devote to trek, I wanted to find out which is better:
1. the first part of the Trek from INNSBRUCK Austria to STOP.
2. the first part of the Dolomites AV2.
I am hoping that you will consider particularly the difficulty level distinguishes between them.
As well as exit points to civilization, end of road.
And most importantly, as one who was there, what would you recommend?
Thanks in advance

We would love to hear more or less costs and some used equipment (rucksack, walking stick, warm clothing, etc.)

Thanks:)

Hello, songs
I think this is ultimately a matter of personal preference.
The first part (in Brixen) greener, more water and have a more "soft" compared to the dolomite limestone mountains with their crest.
Another difference is that the first section there are fewer travellers. Still there, but in mass have AV2 (is much more famous and more "veteran") and it was a bit too much.

As noted, this is personal preference, like the first better.
In terms of difficulty level I don't think there's a significant difference, there are more technical sections in AV2 of some type, etc (but don't have to be afraid of it, it really doesn't matter).

Points out: in the first section there is a problem to do in eight or nine days off. It is also possible to skip the final day, day and a half to go right into a ricksen and take a bus, there's a few places to take a bus, I wrote exactly where in the story through the attached to the message including buses. It's very simple.

In the second part I think it's best to go right after Pradid?li hut not to follow the path, but to take the alternative route (7) down in the Valley to Southeast and from there go south to the road and southwest to near Fiera di Primiero town. There's a bus from there to train to Feltre and Treviso there or to Trento. Depending on where you need to go. There is an integrated card. Orotem 40387.5408101852

What costs?
On average I think cabin costs about 24 euros per person. We avoided as much as possible.
Overnight camping: zero euros.

Basic equipment:
Tent three seasons at least.
The miles should be comfort minus 5. At least minus 10 Xtreme.
Warm clothing including thermal shirt, tights (mainly), fleece hats, fleece gloves, fleece, Gore-Tex (well especially if you have to go out in the rain, if not enough regular trench coat).
Walking sticks (2 per person), telescope (Gipron, Leki)
Backpack: I would with Gregory's Blackwood. But animal backpack.
To all those asking me: no need for a special equipment which we did. In addition, each section since it is necessary (AV2), alternative route where needed. Not too bad, no crampons, no ice axes. Whoever climbs the glacier of mramolda so. And there might be another one on AV2.
The first two sections (in Brixen)-not needed for sure-in any case.
What else?

Hey you,
To add to what Omar wrote in the second part is more dramatic, and some of the most impressive and famous parts (mramolda, for example), but I'd choose one, because of similar reasons. On AV2 were just too much for my taste, travellers In addition, I think the first part is more friendly to visitors with trying to avoid tent cabins-easier to find water and places to put tent and listen to this civilization and towns to passim. On the other hand, if you're into "comfort" trip without carrying a lot and sleep in cabins and eat the other half might actually fit you.
