General advice for appropriate behaviour in the mountains
Despite the mountain’s beauty its dangers should not be forgotten. Do not attempt any mountain tour without appropriate equipment! It is very important to wear mountain boots and waterproof clothing. We advise against any tours if bad weather or fog looks likely. Stay on the marked trails. Inform your accommodation provider about your hiking destination and at what time you plan to return. Start with easy walks and step up the level of difficulty little by little.
Report any alpine accidents to the Pitztal Mountain Rescue. Emergency Number: 140.
Please do not litter in the mountains.
