Dream tour with magnificent mountain lakes

Most of the altitude on this tour is downhill, not uphill! But a picture-book mountain lake awaits!
From the starting point at the Graukogel lift mountain station (1,950 m), follow the Alpine Club footbridge in the direction of the Hüttenkogel and later towards the Palfnersee lake (2,074 m). Then there are about 150 metres of altitude difference until you reach the highest point of the tour at the Palfnerscharte (2,321 m). You cross the Palfnerscharte and turn downhill to the Reedsee, one of the most beautiful mountain lakes. Then you descend through the mountain forest on the long and very steep descent. Back in the Kötschachtal, the trail continues out of the valley to the Grüner Baum. There are refreshment stops at the Graukogel mountain station, at the Himmelwandhütte in the Kötschachtal and at the Gasthof Reiterbauer.
