About the hike

The 5-Lake hike is one of the most beautiful panoramic mountain hikes in Switzerland. A mountain trail winds its way high above the treeline through the ever-changing alpine landscape. This route is characterised by five crystal clear mountain lakes and unique views of the UNESCO world heritage site of Sardona. At the Schwarzsee you can watch the ibex, chamois and, with a bit of luck, even eagles. You can also enjoy the most beautiful views of the Glarus and Grisons mountains, right into the Rhine Valley and up to Lake Constance from practically any point. The 5-Lake hike is a high alpine hike with three challenging ascents and descents. In the top section the route runs over scree and rocky area, for which hikers will high hiking boots with a good grip and proper equipment (rainjacket, maybe trousers, warm clothes). Please also bring enough water and food/snacks. Important: This hike is longer/more intense, so you need to have a good fitness level and know your limits!
