Tour information

The starting point of this hike is the Lettenbichl car park in the Embach district of Angerberg. From there you walk upwards in serpentines along a well-built and secured forest path. After about 2.5 hours you reach the first waypoint: the cosy Buchacker Alm.
Then continue on the trail of the Tiroler Adlerweg to the Adlerhorst viewing platform. 
Here you hike along a forest and meadow path to the entrance of the ice and stalactite cave. The cave at Hundalmjoch is the only show cave in the North Tyrolean Alps where you can see ice and stalactite formations.
You then return to the starting point via the ascent path.

Tip: A detour to the Buchacker summit cross should definitely be planned.
