A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature. ~ Henry David Thoreau ~
In the mountains around Mittersill you can find countless lakes. They make for an excellent hiking goal. Surrounded by beautiful alpine meadows or steep mountain sides, a mountain lake exudes enormous peace. When there is no wind, the lake surface forms an almost magical mirror for it’s beautiful surroundings.
The trails to the lakes are often as varied as the lakes themselves. Sometimes they are wide alpine roads slowly creeping up the mountains, when at other times they are narrow, steep mountain trails. Sometimes it seemes those lakes that are the hardest to get to, are most worth our while. The reward however is always the same: a beautiful lake in gorgeous surroundings.
Upon reaching the lake, we find ourselves at the perfect luncheon spot. I like to take my bivouac sack out, spread it on the ground and lay down on it and close my eyes to enjoy the quiet and sun. Off course, I have first stepped bare foot into the lake to enjoy a little hydrotherapy.
During this week I will take you to 3 beautiful lakes. The hikes take about 5-8 hours and come into the category easy or intermediate (click here for a short explanation).
