The tour
The alpine hut village of the Planner Alm lies in the Planner Kessel, easily reachable via the access road from Donnersbach.  Liselotte Buchenauer found an appropriate description for this area: “The Planner Kessel has many special features, is easily reachable, the peak can be climbed with minimal elevation change, interesting stones, a lot of water and an amazing abundance of alpine flowers, amid a north-facing horseshoe of mountains that is both green and rugged.”

We climb around 400 m from the hut village to the beginning of the ridge on the Plannerknot (elev. 1,996 m).  Path No. 14 now heads south along the rocky ridge, without great hurdles along the way, past the immense red-black tower of rock.  The little trail leads up and down through impressive fields of larch to the Plannereck and onwards, always stocking to the ridge above the Plannerkessel, taking us to the Kleiner- and Grosser Rotbühel.  In the west, we overlook remote highlands including the Gullingtäler.  Below to the right lies the hut village.  At the trail crossing on the Grosser Rotbühel, the mountain crest turns west,  the trail becomes even narrower and cuts over the Gläserkoppe (elev. 1,970 m) to the last peak of this tour, the Jochspitze (elev. 2,037 m).
Caution is essential for all these trails!  From the Jochspitze, we head downhill to the Goldbachscharte, following signs down through a water-rich cirque and damp forest to the Planneralm.
Turn-by-turn directions

Das Almdorf der Planneralm im Plannerkessel erreichen wir leicht über die Zufahrtsstraße von Donnersbach. Von dort geht es für uns (Weg Nr. 940) 400 Höhenmeter zum Gratbeginn am Plannerknot (1996 Meter). Am Pfad Nr. 14 marschieren wir nach Süden, am Felsgrat entlang, ohne größere Schwierigkeiten. Ein Steiglein führt uns weiter zum Plannereck und von dort am Grat oberhalb des Plannerkessels entlang bis zum Kleinen- und Großen Rotbühel. Beim Wegkreuz wendet sich der Kamm nach Westen und über einen noch schmäleren Steig wandern wir über die Gläserkoppe zum letzten Gipfel dieser Tour, zur Jochspitze (2037 Meter). Von dort geht es für uns bergab zur Goldbachscharte und wir folgen der Markierung durch das Kar bis zur Planneralm.
