Mountain Hike

This hike in the Hohe Tauern National Park leads through the idyllic Debanttal Valley with thick pine forests to one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the Schober massif. The history of the Trelebitschsee lake, surrounded on all sides by high mountains, dates back to the Ice Age. Hikers may well see marmots and chamoix as they make their way through the valley, of even a golden eagle. Waterfalls above and below the Trelebitschalm hut as well as fine views of the Sattelköpfe peaks make for a truly breathtaking hiking experience.

Trail description

The hike begins at the Seichenbrunn car park in the Debanttal Valley, at 1,666 metres above sea level. Drive from Nußdorf-Debant near Lienz on the "Alt-Debant-Straße" road via Obernußdorf along the banks of the Debantbach river for around 13.5 kilometres into the valley. At the start of the car park there is a narrow trail heading left into the forest. Follow this trail up towards the Trelebitschalm at almost 2,000 metres, which you will reach after a series of corners. Via meadows and then more rocky terrain you continue north of the Sattelköpfe upwards to the Trelebitschsee lake at 2,336 metres above sea level.

Follow the same route back to the car park.
