Bijou on the Pizol


Whether Wildsee, Schottensee, Schwarzsee or Baschalvasee: Each of the four Pizolseen is a bijou in its own right and so different that the viewer can no longer get out of amazement. A hiking classic in Switzerland is the 5-lakes hike, where you can get along to all Pizol lakes. The hike starts at the Pizolhütte on Lake Wangsersee. The ascent to the Wildseelücke at 2,493 m, from where you have a beautiful view to the Ortler and Piz Kesch, takes about an hour. Below the Scharte at 2,438 m lies the Wildsee, with its milky-blue water and looks almost as if painted into the inhospitable-barren alpine landscape. In the background you can discover Pizol Glacier, the Pizol summit and the Grey Horns. After a short descent you reach the greenish shimmering Schottensee at 2,335 m, whose clear water even animates the very hard-boiled on a beautiful summer day from time to time to a swim. Continue to the Schwarzsee 2'368 m, which in contrast to the first two lakes looks rather dark and threatening. No wonder, according to legend, a bull is said to live in the water here. Past numerous old Steinmannli you finally reach Lake Baschalva at 2,174 m, whose color competes with the green of the surrounding mats.
