Last updated on April 8th, 2020 at 06:49 am

The Kelchsau valley is a side valley leading off from the town of Hopfgarten in the Tyrol.

The region offers beautiful slopes and a unique panorama of the Hohe Tauern with the famous peaks of the Großglockner and Großvenediger, plus the Kitzbüheler Horn, the Wilder Kaiser and the Loferer and Leoganger Steinberge.

It is a favourite destination for both snowshoe tours and ski touring enthusiasts.
