Great walk along the dam wall. Scary height! A great platform out over the dam. We walked to the end of the reservoir which took almost an hour and a half. Saw some wildlife but that's all. It was quiet. Most people stay near the...More

You can drive independently, paying the road toll when you get to Breitlahner. It's an interesting drive, passing through many tunnels and avalanche galleries, and you'll...More

We had a nice sunny day and the lake was an amazing colour. And looking at the wall made me wonder how they build it.
