Gartnerkofel - Sonnenaufgangswanderung

We start in the darkness of the night on the Garnitzenweg to the Garnitzenthörl, where we see the light of Luschari in the Julian Alps, short drinking break at the top station of the Gartnerkofelbahn - further on at dawn towards the summit - first dawn colours the sky and so there are always amazing views into the valley (Hermagor Pressegger See), or up to the summit cross. After about 1.5 hours walking time we are at the summit, another hearty Berg Heil and already all eyes and cameras are directed towards the reddish coloured sky.

Silence and touching moments - everyone perceives the sunrise differently - but all agree - it is a special experience!

With many photos on the memory card we set off for the Watschiger Alm, enjoy the good alpine breakfast, with wonderfully fragrant coffee, hearty alpine products and delicious Reindling.
