Parking between Elm & Wicheln, this walk takes you up through a valley littered with waterfalls and great views everywhere you look. The altitude gain was pretty constant, at over 120m per kilometer on the way out, so it makes for some good exercise.

We’re already looking forward to coming back and will aim to do the full walk over Panixerpass.

Near the starting point is a military base with warnings of unexploded ordinance and a training course for recruits to learn to drive tanks!
