    Beautiful outlook on GAP and the Zugspitze. Steep departure to the cow curse waterfalls. Surefooted safety absolutely necessary, telescopic poles are very useful.

    From here you have a good view of the Zugspitze, provided the clouds are not hanging in front of it. The way up is steep and slippery, so only recommended for experienced people. The view from the summit is incredibly beautiful!

    I went up on a bit cloudy - rainy day. The path is steep and small. It is not hard to recognize the path however it is very risky in many different spots. Hiking poles and had experience with alpine trails are highly recommended. From the parking to the peak is more than 1200 m gain. The last 100 m is very slippery but it comes with the high price of the stunning view!

    You got nearly 360 degrees view with mountains. If the cloud doesn’t cover the peaks as I had haha The waterfall at the beginning is absolutely amazing and after the long hike, take a rest near the waterfall and have a cold wash is perfect

    Also conceivable in winter as a snowshoe or ski tour. Fantastic view over almost the entire Bavarian Alps. The paths up here are very steep and demanding.

    from up there you have a beautiful view of GAP and the Zugspitze, provided there are no clouds.
    From Farchant past the Kuhaway waterfalls it is a difficult hike and you should be sure-footed.
    Hiking poles are an advantage

    The last path isn’t as steep as it was before but it has mainly soil which is muddy when rain comes. The view is amazing though!
