Sept. 12th: Schnalstal-Val Senales

We pass several tunnels till we reach the high up Lake Vernagt. The large parking area has a sign “no Camping” but  since we only “park” we don’t care about the sign… The lake’s color is emerald green – beautiful! Here in Vernagt ends the Tisenvalley. On the other end high up in the ice on the Tisenjoch 22 years ago the man from the ice “Ötzi” has been found.

In the next village down the Archeo-Park Schnalstal has been established. Once again we are back in time 6000 of years. Many artefacts, films and documents show us the time of “Ötzi” and his fellow people. You can even try to live a bit of his life by making fire, baking bread and shooting with bow and arrow.
