Sigmund-Thun-Klamm, Kaprun

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Kaprun
Explore the gorge that slices the Kaprun Valley in half at Sigmund-Thun-Klamm, created by a glacier over 14,000 years ago. The gorge measures 32 m (105 ft) at its deepest, and runs 320 m (1,050 ft) long, marked with rocky riverbanks, whirlpools, and holes. Explore the length of the gorge by a wooden walkway that hugs its side. As you ascend, take in the beauty of the waterfalls that rush below. At the top you'll find a picturesque lake with a reflection of the mountains in the distance. The walkway has stairs in many sections, requiring some basic physical skills, yet it is suitable for children; wear comfortable shoes with good traction. Note that the ascent and descent are two separate paths. Facilities are located at the halfway point.

    Today (17 August 2017) we have a walk through the Gorge. Of course we have beautiful pictures and movies made. I think there are other similar walks can be found that are longer and more impressive. What we have found is the ability to carry a very beautiful. walk around the Klammsee. Highly recommended, so do!

    The Gorge itself is beautiful. The wooden footbridge is closely, especially if each Selfies in the Gorge will make and even photo tripods are built. Then, more is not getting through. Uncomfortable the pushing of people is behind them. The Gorge is spectacular - with fewer visitors.

    We ran Center walk to the Gorge of Kaprun. By the Sommerkaprun map, no entrance fee the Gorge. Long it takes not through, so that it is appropriate to run afterwards to the Gorge Lake.
