Tour information

The hike to Hexenwasser starts right at the summit of Hohe Salve. From there we walk past Salven Chapel to the hiking path leading to Salvensee. In serpentines the path leads us steeply downhill and once arrived at the plateau we can make a detour to the reservoir Salvensee. The clear mountain lake right below the summit entices with refreshing cool water and a marvellous view. Via the high route we continue to the next reservoir at Keatalm.
Keat lift , a comfortable chair lift, is also situated right along the high route. There is the possibility to take the chair lift down to Hexenwasser. Or we master the last metres on foot, always keeping our destination in sight, the mountain station in Hochsöll.
Once arrived at Hexenwasser we have a wide range of possibilities of what to do next.
In order to get back to the summit of Hohe Salve we can either walk the same way back or take the comfortable gondola
