Lake Chiusetta, a little mountain lake and popular hiking destination, is accessible from Cadipietra in the Valle Aurina valley.
In the Klausberg hiking area, at the slopes of the 3,251 m high Monte Fumo, a little mountain lake is located, Lake Chiusetta. On its waterfront there are several possibilities to relax on the foot of the Durreck Group and enjoy the unforgettable panoramic view on the Zillertal Alps.
At the mountain station of the Klausberg Cable Car in Cadipietra, the path proceeds past several managed mountain huts at 1,600 m a.s.l. Always following the marker no. 33, the trail leads to Lake Chiusetta at 2,162 m a.s.l. after about 1.5 hours walking time (560 m altitude difference).
In good weather conditions, the impressive peaks are reflected in the water. Behind the Lake Chiusetta - “Klaussee” in German, “Lago Chiusetta” in Italian -, well-known gigantic mountains of the Zillertal Alps rise, like Mt. Lovello and Mt. Sasso Nero. Those who don’t have enough, can climb the peak of the Monte Fumo or hike further to the “Breite Rast” (2,098 m a.s.l., about 1 hour).
Altitude: 2,162 m a.s.l.
