    Tour is very good when it is hot and sunny: there is a lot of shade and coolness through the spray of the river. Also very good for children, as there are many play options in the hut.

    The umbal falls are really impressive! A rewarding little, easy hike that can be extended to the Clarahütte.

    If you make your way to the Clarahütte and still have some space in your backpack, you can bring the hosts and staff a bit of fresh fruit. They are very happy about that!

    The Umbal Falls are a unique natural spectacle! There are now also guided tours by the national park rangers.

    mostly our first port of call for our mountain vacation. 11 stations lead up to the beginning of the waterfalls. All stations are equipped with display boards. Also new are two steel bridges, which extend beyond the falls and allow the water masses to be seen better. Also worth mentioning is the Großbach waterfall in front of the 1st station, which lets its water shoot into the Isel from a great height.

    There is a circular route from the Islitzeralm: directly past the Umbal Falls and back through a mystical forest.

    "Let it take effect : I let my feet hang in the water until I can't stand it anymore because of the cold, close my eyes and imagine letting the full power of the stream and its falls into my body through my feet... and me I feel incredibly strong about it."

    Here the steep ascent at the Umbal Falls is over and you can walk comfortably along the Isel, which is no longer so roaring.

    No matter where you go on holiday in East Tyrol, a visit to the Umball Falls should be part of it. You can easily plan your journey with the hiking bus (car park in Ströden).

    Quite overcrowded at times during the holiday season due to its notoriety - so it's worth a visit on days with more unstable weather - the falls are just as beautiful then and you can enjoy them almost to yourselves. Light is also great in the later afternoon hours.
