Panoramic hike to the Gipslöcher.
Distance 12.8 km
From the mountain station, the first part of the trail is a comfortable walk that takes you toward Hüttenboden. With a little luck, you will find edelweiss right next to the path. From Hüttenboden the path ascends slightly via Salaaser Eck to Ravaischer Salaas, where most of the Gipslöcher are located. Gipslöcher are impressive sinkholes in the gypsum rock. At Bergli a small detour can be made to the head of Salaaser, there the view opens up over the entire Silvretta Arena and the Paznaun mountain panorama. Toward the south you can observe the small Sulnerferner on the left below Piz Rot. Traversing the Zeblas pastures you will reach the demanding descent via the road to Samnaun. On the way a detour to the waterfalls is possible. Since the Sulnerferner has withdrawn, the waterfalls often carry little water.
