This E5 segment in high-alpine terrain is physically challenging and full of scenic highlights. Starting in the mountaineering village of Vent, a rather steep trail will take you across the Ramoljoch saddle (3,189 m) to Obergurgl. Right below the Ramolhaus Hut, there is the Piccard rope bridge across the Gurgler Ferner gorge. You will also be passing the Langtalereck Hut along the way. Make sure to stop at the viewing point on your way down. The views of the Gurglertal valley and the massive peaks at the end of the Ötztal valley are absolutely breathtaking. This challenging hike goes through the Ötztal Nature Park and the mystical Arolla Pine Forest before ending in Obergurgl, the highest Austrian village with a church at 1,930 m.
