Tappenkarsee and Glingspitze 塔彭卡湖和格林斯匹茨山
16.07.2007 31 °C
Today we got up much more earlier than yesterday, because in this hut, they clean the rooms at 8am everyday, and the breakfast time is 7am-8am, only one hour. Besides, most of the guests like hiking in the early morning, so they do not complain doing everthing so early.
However, We still tired to sleep as longer as possible, unfortunately, at 8am, already could hear the cleaners making big noise, actually they did it on purpose to wake us up, because we were the last two guests still staying in the room, faint!
When we left the room, the breakfast time was already finished, so we had to take breakfast on the way to the Glingspitze.
As for the Glingspitze, it is 2457m, the highest mountain we have climbed so far. But going down the mountain, we did not want to repeat the old route which we climbed up, so we chose another longer route, I mean, we needed climbing 3 more mountains, then could arrive the Tappenkarsee. It sounded a little crazy, during half day, we climbed 4 mountains, wow, almost could not believe, but it was really a truth!
Walking out from the hut, on our left side, we could see the Tappenkarsee in the early morning...
...and on our right side, we could see the Glingspitze with a sharp peak.
A broken wood bridge, looked like was damaged by the thunderstorm.
Before going up to the Glingspitze, we took the breakfast first on this big rock.
This mountain is in front of us, it connects with the Glingspitze. After reaching the Glingspitze, we would hike through there.
Here is another side of the Glingspitze. We would go up to the Glingspitze from here.
After finishing the breakfast, we continued hiking. There are too many creeks here, no wonder the mountains in this area are very green.
Look at my honey's heavy bag, can you guess how much weight is it?
Here there are not only many cows, but also some horses.
Carrying such a heavy bag, I almost could not keep my back straight all the times, walking liked an old woman, hehe.
The higher mountain we reached, the more wild flowers we could find. In this mountain, there are many different beautiful wild flowers.
Because I was busying on taking pictures for those wild flowers, my honey reached the top of Glingspitze first.
We were taking lunch there.
Nice top of the mountian, but the pity thing was that there were too many flies and other different insects, too bad...
...but the landscapes surround the Glingspitze were really very beautiful.
Now we began to go down the Glingspitze, and continued hiking other 3 mountains.
We could see the Tappenkarsee again! Acutually, it was still very far from here, although it looked like very close to us.
It is the most dangerous part of the route, very steep, and this kind of stones are very easy to be broken, if not be careful, people will fall down easily.
The Tappenkarsee was more and more closer to us.
Looking back, we had already passed such a long route. Cool!
On the way to the Tappenkarsee, we heard the marmot's voice, but could not see them. Suddenly, my honey found a cave of marmot, but it was empty, the marmot already came out before we reached there.
My honey used the panorama function to take this picture, just wanted to try to show the whole route we hiked, from the left side to the right side, actually still had some parts of the routes were not in this picture, because it was too difficult to take all of them.
Now we could see the Tappenkarsee clearly.
Looking at the Tappenkarsee, the feeling was so nice, not only because of the beautiful view, but also because of already finishing the most toughest route of this hiking tour.
Now we decided to have a rest beside the lake, because we felt so tired.
Haha, let my hiking shoes draw a full shop for this 3-day Austrian mountains tour.
