Track description

The trail begins in Ferden and passes through the "Färdawald" Forest up to the Kummenalp. There the ascent to the Unders Färda, a charming floodplain abundant with colourful Alpine flowers, begins. The path then continues along the young Färdabach stream up to a small mountain lake at a height of 2403 m above sea level, which is called "coffee lake" by the locals. Here you can explore the fascinating rock and moraine landscape. Return to Ferden along the same route (approx. 2 hours 05min).
