To the Lärchkar Alm and Stalla Alm

Open
Easy, comfortable alpine pasture hike near the banks of the Lärchkarbach.
The Lärchkarbach flows into the Donnersbach near the village of Hinterwald. We’ll follow the Donnersbach to Glattjoch; to reach the Lärchkaralm and the Stallaalm, we’ll hike up a slight incline through romantic forest terrain. Tons of tiny streams from the steep slopes of the Schreinl (the dominant mountain in this valley, at 2,145 meters) flow into the stream and even take on the form of waterfalls just before the Lärchkaralm. The hut is located in a drawn-out alpine pasture near the confluence of the Siebenhüttenbach and Goldbach, which combine to create the Lärchkarbach.

For those interested in visiting the Stalla Alm, just continue to follow the alpine road along the Goldbach. The Stalla Alm is a high alpine pasture with an impressive cirque as its backdrop, and the routes that continue on beyond it eventually lead to the Planneralm. As always, refreshments and other homemade farm products are available at the huts. We will take the same path back down the mountain that we followed up.
