Next day, We had planned a trek to Krimml waterfalls. We took a train to Krimml with an interchange in between.
The train journey was amazing with beautiful landscapes and small villages which actually didn’t look like villages. The snow capped Austrian alps were visible in the background of these villages and added glamour to the enchanting views. There was a bus which we took to reach the base of the waterfall. From there, the trek began .
The waterfall has 3 stages and is the highest in Austria. The climb gets quite steep but when I saw people much older than me climbing and even people with kids doing this, I felt motivated . The lowest part is where we went closest to the waterfall to feel it’s force and the water sprinkling on our faces.
I have a special memory here of friendly people volunteering themselves to take some wonderful pictures of us. We reached to the top of the waterfall but since the information was in German everywhere and there was no internet, we didn’t understand till how far does the trek continue. We then figured out the meaning of the signboard by taking help from people there.
Most of the people here as well knew English which was again a savior in this place. We did go further in search of the hidden views of the alps and finally got to see the snow capped alps more closely. Since we had to take the train back to Salzburg the same day, we decided to return.
A journey is incomplete till we don’t push ourselves to see the extraordinary and this place does complete justice to this .
