Beautiful summit tour to the Lachenspitze. Pure nature in the truest sense of the word. Three clear mountain lakes, magnificent views, wonderful peaks as far as the eye can see and the natural jewel Vilsalpsee. Scattered all over the tour there are several places to stop for refreshments. Wonderful Tyrolean delicacies reward this tour.

From Inn Vilsalpsee we walk a few metres along the eastern shore. Until the Untere Traualpe (not managed) here the hiking trail towards Traualpe/Landsberger Hütte begins. The path leads serpentine uphill, we cross a small brook a few times until we reach the Traualpe. Along the beautiful Traualpsee we go back until the ascent to the Landsberger Hut is waiting for us. When we reach the Landsberger Hütte, we keep left and follow the signs to the summit. We descend to the other side towards Lachenjoch. And on to the Landsberger Hütte and back to the starting point.

Enjoy the 3 lakes view from the top of the Lachenspitze

However, please never forget that the weather in the mountains can change very quickly. Stay on the marked hiking trails.

The personal mountaineering equipment must be safe and serviceable and meet the relevant technical standards. Every hiker is recommended to obtain information about the planned tours from specialist alpine literature or on site.
