Hinterer Seelenkogel 3472m from the Langtalereckhütte


2 days



1-4 Persons

A grandiose ski tour with a wonderful crossing option with the descent via the steep Wasserfallferner into the Rotmoostal valley. From the summit, fantastic views down to Pfelders and south to the Texel Group and the Dolomites. Wonderful firn slopes await us on the descent to the hut in the Langtal valley. A racy and challenging descent over Wasserfallferner into the Rotmoostal awaits us on a traverse. In good conditions an absolute dream descent!


Day 1, Variant 1:
Independent ascent from Obergurgl via the Schönwieshütte and the Gurgler Almhütte to the Langtalereckhütte.
The approach is first along the ski slopes and then follows the prepared path to the Schönwieshütte. Continue along the piste bully track marked with poles to the Langtalereck hut.
Attention: The hut approach from the Schönwieshütte is marked with poles and mostly prepared but not secured against alpine dangers (avalanches).
Please be sure to check the current situation with us before setting off!
Meeting point with the mountain guide for evening reading at the hut.

Day 1, Variant 2:
We are also happy to accompany you from Obergurgl. Meeting point 13:00h at the Alpincenter Obergurgl.
Additional costs: 280€ for 1-4 persons

Day 1, Option 3:
Would you like to take a peak with you on the day of the approach?
The Hangerer is practically on the way, the Eisseekögele traverse would also be an exciting alternative.

Day 2:
Early start, ascent via the Vorderen and Hinteren Ackerlen to the Mittleren Seelenferner. Over this and a short steep step to the Wasserfallferner. Panoramic views to the ski depot. Short ascent on foot to the summit cross at the highest point.
