The sound of cowbells, a meadow filled with cotton grass, and the view of a mountain lake with ripples across its surface: This is what a perfect Alpine Summer in Salzburg's Lungau looks like.
Around 60 mountain tarns can be found here: Nestled between alpine cirques and forests, high meadows, cliffs and peaks. Finding them is like being on a treasure hunt, with these precious gems surprising you time and again, never losing any of their appeal. And the joy you sense from discovering one tarn, merely sparks your curiosity for the next.
