Exit at Furtschellas La Chudera
Our trip began with a trip by cable car to the station Furtschellas La Chudera to a height of 2312 m above sea level. taste local specialties. We chose the path around the lakes.
We went to the platform with the ponds. The weather is not too good for us, so the peaks of Grialetsch and Furtschellas remain hidden in the clouds. But we already see the first small lake.

The last lake

We discovered another lake near the waterfalls. The view here was so beautiful that it was worth a lunch break.
