Gipfelerlebnis T4 - Piz Badus (Six Madun)
Show all 7 images
In his stories, he tells of an adventurous undertaking about a glacier that we can no longer imagine today. He described Lake Toma as follows: "This lake, 200 steps wide and 400 steps long, is the basin from which the Front Rhine originates. It is a beautiful area and therefore worthy to be the original source of such a river."
We start the hike at the Oberalp Pass and join the hiking groups that flock to Lake Toma. The lake, which is considered the source of the Rhine, is one of the most beautiful places in the region. It is nestled in a hollow at the foot of the Piz Badus which is why the lake is also called "cradle of the Rhine" in the Romance language. We let the impressive scenery affect us, but it pulls us up, towards the summit. We soon found the trail tracks at the back of the lake and we climb over meadows up to the ridge. Again and again we take a look back, and admire the lake, whose water shimmers up to us in the most beautiful blue. The last section to the summit is rocky and partially exposed. At the summit cross it has little space to sit and a lot of air around. And the view - phenomenal!
