Eight Summit March
The high-alpine extreme tour in the mountain world of Vinschgau lasts about 12 hours and is only possible to do for passionate mountaineers and hikers with good stamina.
Originally, the idea for the Eight Summit March was given by the priest of Glurns. In fact, the mountain adventure begins at 3 o’clock in the morning with a holy mass. Afterwards, the march begins on the city square of Glurns.
Via the meadows of Glurnser Alm, the hikers first reach Glurnser Köpfl (2,395 m), then Plaschweller (2,534 m) and Piz Chavalatsch (2,763 m). The next summits of the Eight Summit March are Piz Sielva (2,855 m), Piz Minschuns (2,935 m) and the highest peak: Furkelspitze (3,004 m). Afterwards, the tour continues to Großer Tartscher Kopf (2,952 m) and Korspitze (2,935 m). The finish is on Stilfserjoch pass, which is reached after 12 hours.
In total, the participants have to master a distance of 33 km and an altitude difference of 3,300 meters. In fact, the Eight Summit March from Glurns to Stilfserjoch is only reserved for trained hikers and mountaineers. All those, who come to the finish line will be awarded with unique mountain panoramas and with overwhelming happiness.
