At the beginning of our vacation we already visited Mount Dobratsch once, but did not make it up to the mountain top, due to heavy winds. Today we found perfect weather conditions and hiked all the way up to the top:
Fences to protect the villages in the valley from avalanches.
Another valley which glaciers formed over thousands of years:
The old mountain chapell at 2100m above sealevel and a modern construction in front:
The birds were cute at the beginning:
It did not take long and they made me feel quite nervous, getting closer and gathering with their folks:
Shew, shw, away with you, please!
Which leaves you with approx. 450-500m up to the top.
This is probably the most scenic parking lot you can find in the southern hemisphere of Austria. Wow. wow. wow. What a beauty. The mountains in the back, not the AUDI!
Snow in front, fog in the valley, imitating snow. Sun on the top of the mountains - a very typical situation you find on many winter days in Carinthia.
When you dive into the fog on your way down to the valley it feels very bizarre, so dark all of a sudden. There is this saying "the sun always shines above the clouds". Here you can experience it life.
