5-Lake-Hike – Pizol – Switzerland

The 5-Lake-Hike is a famous hiking track close to the town of “Sargans” in Switzerland. It can easily be done in one day and the most complicated part of the track is basically making sure that you are not missing the last chairlift down to Sargans. So don’t start too late – and try to go on a sunny day where you can really enjoy the panorama.
