Summit Experience T4 - Piz Badus (Six Madun)

In his stories, he tells of an adventurous company about a glacier that we can no longer imagine today. He described Lake Toma as follows: "This 200-step-wide and 400-step-long lake is the basin from which the aneals of the 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 Oberalppass and join the hiking groups that are heading in droves to the Tomasee. 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 the "cradle of the Rhine" in the Romanesque language. We let the impressive scenery work for us, but it pulls us up, towards the summit. We soon found the 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 there is little space to sit and a lot of air all around. And the view - phenomenal!
variant: omit the loop to the Maighelshütte (time saving, approx. 1 hr)
