Description

Very comfortable by cable car form Enzingerboden to Rudolfshütte at 2.311 m. The ascent to Kalser Tauern at 2.518 m by foot lasts about 1 hour.

The surrounding mountain range of the Granatspitz- and Glocknergroup is characterized by deep blue lakes, white glaciers and rugged peaks.

Then , always focusing the Dorfersee (lake), in about 2 hours, through the Kalser Dorfertal valley along a singposted path surrounded by a marvellous alpine flora and fauna to the mountain lake at 1.941 m, which invites to rest.

Further on along a larch forest with many old alp huts to Kalser Tauernhaus in about an hour. The following hike of this tour lasts about 1,5 - 2 hours and leads along a graveled street to Bergeralm in the Dorfertal valley and ends in the wild romantic Dabaklamm - canyon.
