Am Wildsee

Am Wildsee




Tour description

Mountain walk with unequalled panoramas. High above the tree line, an extensive mountain path passes through an ever-changing alpine landscape. Main features are 5 crystal-clear mountain lakes and views over the UNESCO site of Sardona.

From Wangs, the Pizol railway travels, in three sections, to the Pizolhütte (2227m) on the Wangersee. During the climb that lasts roughly one hour, a broad view opens up over the East Swiss, Grison and Austrian Alps. From behind the Wildseelücke (2493m above sea level), the Wildsee appears. Enjoy encaptivating views of the Pizol glavier, with the 2844m high Pizol summit and the Graue Hörner.

This is followed by a brief descent to the deep-blue Schottensee. On the gentle rise over the Schwarzplangg, the view extends back over the Sardona heritage site, with the Pizol glacier, Ringelspitz, Piz Sardona and Glarus Alps. You now descend to the dark Scharzsee (2368m), where ibex, chamois and eagles can be seen.

Passing the legendary Steinmannlis, you reach the final descent over the east face of the Gamidaur, which leads to the fifth and final lake, the green Baschalvasee (2174m). Next is the descent to Station Gaffia; the mountain railway returns to Wangs in two sections from here
