An alternative route for the 2nd day along the Schladminger Tauern High Trail with one of the most beautiful lakes in the Schladminger Tauern range.
The route to Keinprechthütte via Duisitzkarsee Lake and Neualm is a beautiful alternative to the classic stage of the Schladminger Tauern High Trail. Although a little longer by walking time and length, the panoramic view from Ferchtlhöhe ridge into Duisitzkar cirque and resting at the gorgeous lake fully compensate for the little detour.
Alpine trail crossing a steep mountain face. Quite steep descent from Ferchtlhöhe ridge into Duisitzkar cirque.

Don't forget your camera. The breathtaking view from Ferchtlhöhe ridge to Duisitzkarsee Lake is worth a couple of photos.
Surefootedness and experience in Alpine terrain required.
Changes in weather patterns, quick falls in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snow are some of the dangers that can be encountered on a hiking tour. Hosts of alpine huts and mountain refuges have a lot of experience in the mountains and can give good advice about weather and the trails. Poor equipment, overestimation of one's own capabilities, carelessness, poor personal constitution and/or wrong judgement can lead to critical situations. In case of thunderstorms: avoid summits, ridges and steel ropes.
GPS data and orienteering
Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.
In an emergency please call:
A well-packed backpack is helpful and especially when touring Alpine terrain a tuque, gloves, a windproof jacket and pants are standard equipment. Good, waterproof shoes, sun glasses, sun cream and sufficient beverages are essential too. Torch light, a map of the area, knie and a small first-aid kit should also be in the backpack.
