Description

The challenging summit tour to the viewing mountain in the Kitzbühel South Mountains.
Der Bischof - The Bishop - a demanding mountain tour that starts in Oberaurach. Follow the signs past the church towards Wildalm, Hochwildalm, which mostly allows us to ascend to the Hochwildalm on alpine roads. After the Hochwildalm, the hiking trail to the 'Bischofsjoch' becomes more demanding and from the yoke every hiker needs to be sure-footed. The ascent to the summit is pretty rocky, but the climb is still clearly visible. Before we reach the summit, you can see the destination from far away by the summit cross. At the summit, the eye wanders from the Leoganger Steinberge, Loferer Steinbergen, Steinplatte, Wilder Kaiser, Hahnenkamm, Großer Rettenstein to the Hohe Tauern. The same climb leads us back to the Hochwildalm. While you take a break at the hut, you can calmly retrace the ascent route to the bishop. We start the descent strengthened and reach our starting point. Attention, this tour is only recommended in safe and dry weather! In spring, snow fields can still make it difficult to get in!
