Furgler 3004m (16/7 2010)

Furgler seen from the cableway station Lazid, 2346m. The cableway starts from the village Serfaus, south of Landeck in Tyrolia. (större bild)

Maria on the way up. We choose to climb the path from southwest. (larger picture)

The path rises steeper towards the lake Tieftalsee. (larger picture)

Pause on a beautiful spot by Tieftalsee, just below 2800m. (larger picture)

The path goes around the lake, before climbing towards the summit. This part is relatively steep, but it's possible to walk normally almost all the way. (larger picture)

The view from Furgler is magnificent. Here is a look to the north, towards Lechtaler alpen. (larger picture)

The descent to the northeast is steeper, and demands some scambling. But it's a very nice path to walk. (larger picture)

A bit further down there is a shorter steep passage, secured with a rope. (larger picture)

After a while we are down to the saddlepoint Furglerjoch, at 2748m. From here and down te path is easy. (larger picture)

At the second lake of today, Furglersee. Ötztaler alpen in the background. (larger picture)

The first nice meeting of today. A small marmot peekes at us, wondering when we will leave so he can be left alone. (larger picture)
The second nice meeting of today, this time with an Alpine Apollo. A very beautiful (and protected) butterfly. (larger picture)
