Stage 2: Grawa Wasserfall - Sulzenau Alm - Sulzenauhütte
Walking time: 2.5 hours
Altitude gain: 660m
Distance: approx. 4km
Then WildeWasserWeg Trail snakes its way along the old pasture path: direct, steep, uncomplicated. Surefootedness, good stamina and most importantly good boots are required because of the wet ground. On the way up Grawa waterfall can be experienced close-by on two further vantage spots – one at the same level as the turbulent deep stilling basin, the other directly above the exposed edge. There you can experience the power of water and feel the quavering caused by the waterfalls as well as the water mist on your skin.
After a walking time of a bit more than an hour you get to Sulzenegg (1,800m) from where an almost flat path leads through the valley basin that has been shaped and is dominated by the three waterfalls and the many meanders to Sulzenaualm hut. Enjoy the view of the glacier all along.
From the idyllically located mountain hut the trail leads close to the foot of the most powerful of the three waterfalls – Sulzenaufall. The water of this unique waterfall drops 200m down a narrow swath and into the green pasture ground of Sulzenaualm pasture. Especially in the early afternoon the waterfall shimmers in all shades. It whooshes and sprays its mist in all directions and at its end it even forms a fantastic water mushroom.
You continue along serpentines to Sulzenauhütte hut in a relaxed way. Sulzenauhütte, which is set on nice, flat ground, towers like an aerie directly above a rocky edge.
