One of the most popular hikes in Switzerland. Five crystal clear mountain lakes and glimpses of the Tectonic Arena Sardona characterize this route.
The 5-lake hike is one of the most beautiful panoramic mountain hikes in Switzerland. High above the timberline, a mountain trail winds through the ever-changing alpine landscape, passing five mountain lakes - each with its own unique character. From the lovely Wangsersee on the Pizol plateau, the trail continues to the second lake, the striking turquoise Wildsee with the Pizol glacier and peak in the background. Followed by the dark Schwarzsee, the Schottensee as the third lake shines in a deep strong blue. Finally, the trail leads past the greenish, romantic Baschalva Lake.
On the hike it is worthwhile to look in all directions. Along the entire route, new fascinating views of the Glarus and Grisons mountains, the Rhine Valley and Lake Constance open up again and again.
