This beautiful hike takes you into Alpine grounds and passes by several crystal clear mountain lakes and tarns - the Giglachsee Lakes, the Klammsee Lake and the Brettersee Lake. Several refreshment stops are waiting along the route and you will be marvelled by the panoramic views of the Giglachkar cirque and the Obertal and Preuneggtal valleys.
Changes in weather patterns, quick falls in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snow are some of the dangers that can be encountered on a hiking tour. Hosts of alpine huts and mountain refuges have a lot of experience in the mountains and can give good advice about weather and the trails. Poor equipment, overestimation of one's own capabilities, carelessness, poor personal constitution and/or wrong judgement can lead to critical situations. In case of thunderstorms: avoid summits, ridges and steel ropes.
GPS data and orienteering
Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.
