Another Austrian adventure, up among the famous Salzkammergut mountains, in an idyllic scenario with two of the best kept secrets of Austria: Vorderen and Hinteren Langbathsee.
Name: Langbathsee Runde
Terrain: forest, few rocks and gravel around the lake
Duration: 4h-5h back and forth depending on the fitness level
Distance: around 11km
To do before/to bring:
- water (at least 2lt per person in a very sunny day)
- hiking boots / trail running shoes – not necessary heavy boots
- ticks repellent
After parking the car nearby the Wirtshaus Grossalm, we decided to start our hike in the strongest way – all up till the maximum elevation point. We have even passed through such area where it was unclear if a storm or the human passed by. But suddenly, we were greeted by the view of the lake.
Yop, that was quite a view indeed. From the highest point, we moved toward the lake itself, hence our descent under the greenest trees I have ever seen, started.
Interestingly, when we reached the lake part, there were some people but not as many as we would have expected and hence, we enjoyed a bit of quality time (and quality shoots).
It wasn’t the longest or most strenuous hike I have ever done, but was definitely worth it to relax a bit.
Yop, see you to the next one!
