Moderately difficult mountain hike over the summit and ridge of the Entschenkopf (2043 m) with breathtaking views of the Allgäu alps
The Entschenkopf is a 2043 m high summit in the Allgäu alps. The tour to the summit is regarded one of the most beautiful in the region, due to its fantastic views. We hike from Reichenbach to the alpine hut Gaisalpe and to Falkenjoch and then climb the summit. We continue on a ridgeway with beautiful views of Rubihorn and the mountain lakes Gaisalpseen. You should bring a head for heights and surefootedness, climbing equipment is not necessary. We climb down over Gängele, passing the lakes Oberer and Unterer Gaisalpsee where we can enjoy a refreshing bath in the summer. At the alpine huts Gaisalpe and Untere Richteralpe we have the possibility to stop and get a snack or meal.
Save the route offline in your Outdooractive App before starting the tour.
There is a section close to the summit where we have to climb, you should have some experiences in the mountains.
Solid shoes, comfortable clothing which suits all weather conditions, perhaps hiking sticks, swimwear in the summer months (Gaisalpsee)
