A destination away from the 3,000-metre peaks. A high plateau with a magnificent view, several high mountain lakes and a lovely alpine pasture promise an eventful hike with destination in Zwieselstein.
From Obergurgl, the trail leads from the Pirchhütter Ach bridge up to the idyllic lake plateau at approx. 2,500 m. Once there, you can already see the mountain pastures. Once there, you can already see the clear Soomsee, which glistens calmly in the sun. Surrounded by green grasses and soft mountain meadows, the lake invites you to linger for a long time.
From the Soomsee, you hike on with an unbelievable mountain panorama at the foot of the 3,000-metre peaks to the next highlight of the stage - Nedersee, to which the Nederkogl lends its name! The rustic Lenzenalm, which you reach on the descent, invites you to a cosy stop-by, with traditional delicacies and Tyrolean cuisine. The stage destination is the village of Zwieselstein, where the two side valleys of Gurglertal and Ventertal meet.
