This sophisticated mountain tour brings us to the prehistoric cultural place "Omini di Pietra". Noone knows exactly for which reason these piles of stones have been built on this elevation and wherefore. In spring, the crocus blossoms on the meadows in this area are overwhelming, and in autumn the larch trees on the Salten show their most colorful side. Worth mentioning is as well the sanstone quarry of Meltina, which you will pass.

During this tour you will pass the following alpine huts, where you can stop and have a rest: Sattlerhütte, Möltner Kaser, Jenesinger-Jöchl-Alm and Lanzenschuster

After ariving at the parking place Schermoos you have two optiones: or you walk for 40 minutes to Meltina, your starting point, or you take the bus which passes 4 times a day at Schermoos.

If you start at Meltina you have to follow for at least 300 meters the sidewalk in direction to Salonetto. Finally you reach a crossrod with path no. 13, which leads you to the right side. Way 13 leads to the crossroad with Hohlweg, from where you should take path no. 4A an 14A to Kircheben. At Kircheben take path no. 15 to the hut Sattlerhütte (1606m) and continue to the hut Möltner Kaser (1766m). From here you can reach the Omini di Pietra (2003m) on way no. 28 and later no. 23A. Now you can start on path 23, crossing Blas and arriving at the Jenesinger Jöchl (1671m). On the ways no. 23B, 5 and 8 you will reach the little church Kampidell (1484m) and go then to the restaurant Lanzenschuster (1519m). Finally you will arrive, passing wide spread meadows on path 8A,17A and 5, at the car park Schermoos (1442m).

If you come by car from Brennero, take the motorway A22 until the exit "Bozen Süd". Here you can take the highway MeBo in direction to Merano (SS38) until you reach the exit of Terlano. At Terlano begins the mountain road to Mölten. You can also take the MEBO exit of Vilpiano and take the cable car to Schlaneid / Mölten.
