Hiking Around the Three Lakes of Turrach
Through a Swiss pine forest, past Green Lake, up and over rolling hills, always being led by the fresh mountain air and the surrounding picturesque landscape. The hike around the three lakes of Turrach is a special treat both in summer and winter.
The Three-Lakes-Hike is certainly among Siegrun Pulverer’s favourite hiking routes, one that she often does herself. A mere 20 minutes by car from the Hotel Pulverer, the start of this route starts at 1,800m above sea level, tucked within a Swiss Pine and larch forest.
Giant Mountain Crystals, Alpine Bogs and Swiss Pine Magic
Starting on the east bank of Lake Turrach, the hike goes past giant mountain crystals that have been laid in the open for all to see. Inside the Swiss Pine forest, the trail continues to Green Lake, which is appropriately named. An auditory island, on which you can hear the sounds of nature, and a platform on the lake make it easy for you to enjoy the surroundings with all of your senses. After the Karl chalet on the trail to Black Lake, you will finally reach the treeline.
At the base of the Schober Riegel peak, you will have an amazing view of the Nock Mountains. There is a particularly picturesque view of the Eisenhut alpine chalet from the Black Lake. The return route takes you through an alpine bog and back through the Swiss Pine forest to Lake Turrach.
