Krimmler Fälle 17.7.2016

With Dr. Anthony Mvungi from Tansania on a mountain round tour in Austria. Anthony stays in Austria for a month for study purposes in St. Veit an der Glan in Carinthia. I am in touch with Anthony for a few months now. He is a very much nice guy and strongly dedicated to his profession and the project. I am very much impressed by this project that has been started in the small village of Momella 6 years ago by to Viennese female doctors, so this is to ask you to inform yourselves about the project using the link above and maybe even donate some money for it.

Today it is raining in the morning, so we abandon the original plan to drive the Glocknerstraße. We stayed over night in Mauterndorf, where we met Peter Kai, the founder of the Sterntalerhof, who lives here for three years, after his retirement. We cross the Radstäüdter Tauern and drive up the Salzach valley till its end at Krimml and walk up along the Krimml waterfalls, with overcast, but dry weather.

The lower Krimml waterfall. Anthony once more is fascinated by the huge force of the water, which in his country exists in abundancy only for one or two months in a year.

The lower fall from a bit afar.

On the way up you repeatedly come close to the waterfall in nice view places.

A second video from the Lower Krimml waterfall.

The Median Krimml Waterfall, to be seen here in a video.

A second view, this time from the upper part of the median waterfall, once more in a video.

A short leg of a more flat route above the median waterfall, with a view to the upper Krimml waterfall..

Once more walking up serpentines besides the waterfall.

At the top, there is another view platfrom, from where you can watch the water disappearing in the abyss, here in a last video

We walk a bit farther up to the Hölzlahneralm. Unbelievable to imagine that this lovely valley comes to such an abrupt end just one kilometer downstream.
