Tip van de auteur
This hike can be shortened if necessary.
There is a bus to Obergurgl from the Timmeljoch toll booth which goes four times daily. (it shortens the day by 9km, 900m altitude difference, approx. 3.5 hours). You can also shorten the walk at the start of your day by taking the shuttle bus from Sölden to the Sahnestüberl Hut (shortens the walk by 9km, 650m altitude difference, 3.5 hours).
The restaurant at the toll station is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Watch the short term local weather forecasts. Avoid high altitude hiking when the weather is bad. There are plenty of trails in the valleys, that allow you to reach a village quickly if bad weather sets in.
