My most favourite hike ever

This is one of my favorite hiking trails of all time. While the first 7 km aren't too special, its all worth it once you reach the basin. Once a silver mine, the basin is a beautiful place to visit, with mountains on either side, waterfalls, fresh water from a glacier lake( which you can go to) as well as a cabin that is open for the public to use and sleep in,( provided you pay the fee of 10$ per person per night- visit the website for more information). This hike is an incredible experience, offering something of interest for all levels of fitness and ages. If you reach the cabin and find that you would like to go further- you can continue along the trail further into the mountains, and visit a glacier lake. I recommend this hike in every sense of the word.
