Leg 5 of the Alta Via della Val Venosta (Vinschger Höhenweg) high trail is the shortest and runs, in only about three hours, from the hamlet of Muntetschinig to Planol (Planeil), a village known for its steep streets.
- Start- and target point: Malles
- Duration: 3:00 h
- Distance: 9,0 km
- Altitude: 490 m
- Max. height: 1.591 m
The fifth day is truly a day of rest: while there is no big altitude differential in ascent or descent, you still do have to cover quite a long distance though. Only the first part of the trail is somewhat exposed to the sun, while rest of the ascent to Planol (Planeil) is along the shady, forested northwest slope. So, you can eat a leisurely breakfast and still make it to the scattered, Romansch village of Planol reasonably early.
