Idyllic lake rediscovered
Steep hike to a landscape jewel in the border area between the Eisack and Wipp valleys.

From the car park, briefly follow the forest road (no. 15) and then choose the hiking trail with the marking 14. Mostly steeply up through the forest, over several streams (partly without a bridge), the trail goes uphill. Once you cross the forest road, stay on the road for a short while to rejoin the hiking trail. Now the ascent runs along the rushing stream, which makes its way down into the valley in a small gorge with water cascades. After just under two hours you reach the Puntleider-See-Alm (1777 m, catered). From the alpine pasture to the lake it is about another 20 minutes. The forest trail runs through pine forest. Here the efforts of the ascent are already forgotten. The trail ends on a rock on the eastern shore of the lake, which immediately gives the hiker a great view of the lake, which now lies directly in front of him. Puntleider See (1850 m), one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the southern Wipptal valley, is surrounded by conifers, cotton grass and alpine roses
