Mountains, Serpentine Roads, Lakes and a Glacier

The Kaunertal Valley is characterized by the perfect harmony of nature and human infrastructure. This is partially due to the area being the private property of a company, whose interest it is to ensure the authenticity and the all-year-round availability of both the landscape and the road that going through it. The 29 kilometres long panorama road passes through all the various features of the valley, such as the 6 kilometres long Gepatsch-Stausee Lake located at the bottom of the valley and a glacier which is covered in snow even during the summer and is close to the nearly 3000 meters tall peak. But not only does the road’s starting and endpoint have natural wonders, since the majority of the 29 hairpin bends provide new hiking trails leading to more remote parts of the mountain, lakes or typical Alpine wooden cabins. If one would like to view all of this from above, then there is a ski lift to use that connects the mountain’s base to its peak in the summer for hikers and in the winter for skiers. Winter is the valley’s high season when the snow falls and all the 12 ski tracks open on the mountainside.
