The standard equipment on Via Capricorn includes good footwear, a drinking bottle and a warm jacket for higher areas, but above all: a field engraver. At the latest after the steep ascent from the Alp Biggenmad up to the Alperschälli, the field engraver is at hand. This is where the ibex can be observed particularly often.
The lake is two kilometres from the village of Pigniu. It is about 1.5 kilometers long and about 250 meters wide. It is fed by some unnamed mountain streams. An easy-to-walk hiking or walking trail. It takes about an hour to circumstrate. On the west side, several large waterfalls plunge into the valley.
