From Stoankasern to Lake Junssee and the Geier Peak - guided hiking tour with the Zillertal alps nature park
From the Tux-Center, we take one of the hiking taxis to Stoankasern, where the last mountain dairy in the Zillertal Valley can be found. From there on, we walk initially through some lovely alpine pastures, accompanied by the inquisitive stares of the local population of marmots. After a few terrace-like steps in the terrain, our path turns to the right and surmounts a steep, grassy slope over a number of hairpin bends and short rocky section, secured by steel cable. Once we have managed to pass this section, we will be rewarded with views of the magnificent Lake Junssee, which now lies at our feet. The trail leads from the lake over a stony slope to a mountain yoke, from which it only takes a few minutes to walk to the Geier Peak, where a magnificent mountain panorama awaits. After walking back, the hiker´s taxi takes us back to Tux-Lanersbach.
