Very demanding, alpine stage of the PINGZA HATSCHA with crossing of the Leoganger Steinberge and a lot of altitude metres.
From the starting point at the Asitzbahn cable car, walk flat along the stream in the direction of Saalfelden until you take the path to the Birnbachloch/Passauer Hütte at Rosental. Follow the signs to Birnbachloch/Passauer Hütte. Follow the hiking trails on a pleasant incline until you reach the turn-off to the Passauer Hut. Now it gets steeper and steeper. Initially through the mountain forest, later through mountain pines and finally over rocky terrain, follow the well-marked and partly secured trail to the Passauer Hut. Surefootedness is required in some places. But you will be rewarded with magnificent views. Once you have reached the Passauer Hütte, you head back towards the valley. The last section leads along a forest path to the bottom of the valley and on to Weißbach near Lofer. The descent can be shortened somewhat by taking the hut taxi.
