Verschneite Alm in der Kelchsau - Langer Grund

Tour information

The starting point of the hike is the car park at the Erla Brennhütte, where we can also get a snack and a warming tea. 

From there, we keep going into the valley. We walk through snow-covered forests, always following the clearly visible trail. Again and again we meet the Lange Grund Ache. To the left and right of us, the mountains tower up and invite us to swarm. After a little more than 1 hour's walk, we reach the destination of our tour, the Tiefentalalm (not open in winter). We sit down on a bench and enjoy the snack we brought with us. 

We start our way back along the same path. A snowshoe hike for beginners and nature lovers.
