The mountain trail of the five-likes: pure Swissness in Pizol (Glarus)

If you have a long weekend to spend in Zurich and you are curious to hike on Alps, don’t miss the classic hike of the 5 lakes in Pizol. It is just a 90-minute car drive off Zurich. Here below the second lake.


Via an easy trail you reach the third lake..


Amazing panoramas bring you to the fourth lake…


Five hour-long hike for five different lakes, where else?


Where is the 1st lake? Time to hike up to Pizol and find it!

    I gotta go there! How far would the shortest hike be to get a worthy view?

      The second lake is the most beautiful (first picture of this post). Take the cable cars from Wangs up to Pizol. Then on foot to that lake is an average difficult hike, steep but large path. I took it easy: one hour up, I suppose 40 minutes down back to Pizol instead of the whole 5 hour-long tour.
