Glamour stay over among the glaciers
The silent beauty of the majestic three-thousanders on the shores of a glacial lake. An excellent starting point for hiking trails to explore the glacier near Susten pass. The luxury of tranquility is underlined by the nearby traditional cheese & wine organic shop with local delicacies.
The spot is located about halfway up the climb to the Susten Pass (2200 m above sea level). It is already uninhabited mountain area with several waterfalls. The winding mountain road to the pass rises with numerous bends, bridges and tunnels, and even in June the remains of melting snow drifts are no exception.

Found on the spot
The parking is large enough for about 20 caravans, accessible by asphalt road (3.5 m wide). The area is not inhabited except for a mountain hotel with a restaurant „in a bend“ 1 km away. The location is extraordinary for its impressive scenery, waterfalls and glacial moraines of the Steingletcher Glacier of the eponymous massif. It is not difficult to see marmots, predators or foxes.
Although the parking is open year-round, no one can get there from autumn to spring. It's a quiet road to the mountains and there is about 2 metres of snow from October until April, then it starts to melt until say June.
