The hiking circuit around the Kummersee near Rabenstein/Corvara is easily negotiated and highly worthwhile. Enshrouded in legend, the lake in the Upper Passeiertal Valley combines the splendour of the terrain with the enjoyment of hiking and an appreciation of history. In the summer months, it takes only 2.5 hours to circumvent this former lake basin situated at an altitude of 1,340 m, with an elevation gain of 350 m. Sturdy footwear and thermal, weatherproof clothing is a necessity. Be sure to always stay updated on the current weather and forecast, as well as snow conditions. The eight didactic stations along the lake route help to illustrate the story and peculiarities of these waters and surrounding territory.

Tip: Free folder "Kummersee-Rundweg" in the information offices of the valley available.

Weg nur eingeschränkt passierbar. Diverse Baustellen mit Sperrungen. Überwiegend monoton Bergauf. Gibt schönere Wege in Südtirol..
