Nederkogl peak is Sölden's most famous landmark, towering high above the village. The trail via Lenzenalm hut and Nedersee lake goes up very steeply. But on top you are rewarded with stunning panorama of some other 3,000 meter highmountains in the Ötztal and Stubai Alps.
On the descent, the Lenzenalm is right on the path and invites you to make a stop.
For experienced mountaineers that are free from vertigo & surefooted, Very good physical condition, mountainexperience & mountain equipment (see notice equipment) necessary, such as alpine security material, goodweather conditions recommended.
Appropriate equipment such as breathable suitable outdoor clothes for the weather, ankle-high walking boots,wind-, rain- & sun protection, hat, possibly gloves, is for all hikes and tours necessary. Please bring a first-aidbox, a mobile phone, a walking map and if there is no hut on the way a snack and enough to drink.
The hike starts directly at the bus stop Lenzenalm or at the parking lot Lenzenalm.
From there it takes about 1 hour to the Lenzenalm. It goes up comfortably on a wide forest road through the forest. Always slightly uphill, but not particularly exhausting. The last ascent to the hut is a bit steeper, but then you can enjoy the view to Gurgl.
From the Lenzenalm you go through the forest for a short while - over mountainsides to the nearby Nedersee (2435m, short detour possible) - on a very steep climb you get over hairpin bends in the northeast ridge.
About rough rocks it goes either on the ridge (markings) or in the east flank (also marked) up to the summit.
The descent from the Nederkogel is the same as the ascent!
