Nice mountain dividing Casies Valley (Gsies Tal) from Anterselva Valley (Antholz Tal).
Because you cannot descend to Anterselva valley on the other side I receive a suggestion about the more precise location:
Hoher Mann is the main mountain of the ridge that separates the Gsies / Casies valley from its most importan branch, the Karbach valley.

This summit is particularly interesting for ski mountaineering, the top is easy to reach, the descend is marvellous and the landscape from the summit beautiful.
Many skiers climb this mountain so usual you can follow a preexisting trace.

Thank you to Gangolf for precious advice and help.

Getting There

You have to reach St. Magdalena in Gsies.
Casies Valley is a branch of famous Pusteria Valley, so if you arrived from Bolzano you have to reach Bressanone than Brunico and then Monguelfo where Casies Valley starts.

Red Tape

No permits requested.

When To Climb

If you want to reach the summit with ski you have to climb it from december to march.
Hiking all the rest of the year.


There are not camping site and free camp is usually not allowed.
There are a lot of huts (alm) and B&B. You can easily find a place to stay using the website:
