Trekking in the Zillertal Alps

Guidebook to trekking the Zillertal Rucksack Route (or Berliner Hoehen Weg) and the Zillertal South Tyrol Tour in the Austrian Tyrol. The ZRR avoids glaciers and difficult passes so is suitable for inexperienced trekkers, while the ZSTT traverses the range along the Austro-Italian border. Each takes 8-10 days and has excellent Alpine huts on route.

He has climbed extensively throughout the Alps and in east Africa and the greater ranges in Nepal and Pakistan.
