Pass Gelbsee Lake and Grünsee Lake on the way to Prachtberg Mountain, from the village of Martello (Martell)


Drive through Val Martello (Martelltal) Valley until you reach Gasthof zum See Hotel (1,864 m; parking area). Follow Trail No.17, initially a narrow tarred road and then an almost flat path, through the forest and out of the valley.  Then, briefly hike up and cross two bridges over the Zufrittbach River. Continuing up to the tree line and further on over mountain heather and scree on a moderately steep hike up to Gelbsee Lake (2,729 m; about 3 hours; Grünsee Lake is located behind a moraine). Next follow the clearly marked trail over boulders: the hike is at first moderate then gets steeper, curving through a huge cirque to a short, steep ridge, which is not too difficult to cross with fixed ropes. Then, climb the serpentine trail over boulders, up to the narrow but steep glacier and cross over its upper, split-free part over to the foot of the peak flank (note: if very icy, crampons are needed; the ice can also be bypassed by the rocks above it). From there, follow the signs, climbing first over easy rocks and finally up a very steep cliff with a steel cable up to the summit (3,438m; about 2 hours from Gelbsee Lake). Descent: Return using the same trail.
