Yak Transhumance


To the summit of the Kronplatz with Reinhold Messner!

On 23.06.2018, refuge landlord, Andy Piok, and Reinhold Messner will hike from the Furkel Pass to the Corones Refuge, and in the process drive his Tibetan highland cattle, known as yaks, up to the Corones Refuge at 2,200 metres above sea level.

The meeting place for the hike is on the Furkel Pass at 9.45 am, and at 10 am everyone will set out together for the Corones Refuge (walking time around 1 hr), where the yaks will be spending the summer.

Anyone wishing to take part is very welcome to join in the hike.
