R63 Gargellen » Tübinger Hütte
  |   5h05   |   16.1 km   |   1076 m   |   302 m

Leave Gargellen and head now into the heart of the Silvretta massif. This is indeed a very demanding stage, leading up over 2,500m to the Vergaldner Joch pass. Interestingly enough, the Vergaldner Tal valley has a very favourable climate, allowing a flower world extremely rich in species to develop on the southern slopes.

    La montée au Vergaldajoch (1100m de dénivelée) est très facile: j'y mettrai 3h15 au lieu des 4h annoncées, alors que d'habitude je suis moins rapide qu'indiqué.
    Par contre, le chemin entre les deux "Joch" et la descente au refuge sont plus alpins, avec des passages de pierriers, de queues de névés, de torrents, de schistes.
    La Tübinger Hütte était encore en travaux avec un seul point d'eau (froide) et des toilettes à l'extérieur. Heureusement, nous n'étions que 6 randonneurs.

    Sunday, July 8, 2018 The climb to Vergaldajoch (1100m vertical drop) is very easy: I will put 3:15 instead of the 4h announced, while I usually slower than indicated. By cons, the path between the two "Joch" and the descent to the refuge are more alpine, with passages of scree, tails névés, torrents, shale. The Tübinger Hütte was still under construction with only one water point (cold) and toilets outside. Fortunately, we were only 6 hikers.

    The Tübinger hut is renovated and looks more more like a luxury hotel. Hot water, showers, etc. Electricity is generated by a water turbine.
