Middelzware wandeling | Intermediate hike | Mittelschwere WanderungZware/moelijke wandeling | Difficult hike | Schwere WanderungAlong the beautiful Wildgerlos valley we walk along an unpaved road and the ‘Wilden Gerlos’ river to the Salzboden (English: Salt grounds) at the end of the valley. Once there we enter true alpine country and ascent over a glacier moraine towards the Zittauer Hütte (2,328m). When we’ve reached the cabin, we’ll enjoy a well deserved rest and take in the gorgeous views of the lower Gerlos lake and the Wildgerloskees (‘Kees’ means glacier).

Those who have the stamina and want to, can join me and go on for anohter 2 hours to ascent the Roßkopf peak (2,845m).
