Description
The Lahngang lakes are located about halfway to the Pühringerhütte and are natural jewels that should not be missing from any tour book. The Vordere Lahngangsee is much larger and lies freely on the plateau, the Hintere Lahngangsee lies deep below the trail, is much smaller and difficult to access.After the Lahngangsee you pass the Elmgrube with the hunting lodge, where once the empress Sisi stayed.

Furthermore, the Windloch, a sinkhole in which there is a constant draught of air from below. Finally, in front of the Pühringer hut worth mentioning, "Emils Tränenhügel". Emil Pühringer was a generous patron and donor of the Pühringer Hut. When (in 1927) he first saw "his hut" in this overwhelming scenery from this hill, he is said to have burst into tears of joy.

 

Directions
From the hamlet of Schachen, trail no. 213 leads on a forest road first northward and then in a wide arc below the Schachen Schwaiber to the east. Climbing through the mountain forest you reach the Holzstube and a little later, in the area of the Gößler Schwaiber, a fork in the path. Keep to the right and continue on trail no. 214 in the direction of Kanzlermoos through the outdoor forest.

You come to a narrow place with vertical rock walls, the so-called Draußengatterl. A wire rope protection helps to pass the sometimes slippery place.

You cross a gravel giant, the Lahngang, and climb via the Schafbichl to the Vorderer Lahngangsee at 1,500 meters above sea level. Further on, the marked path leads over the steep slope above the lake to the east. The Hintere Lahngangsee is hidden in a basin below the path.

A particularly charming place is the Elmgrube with its small huts and a hunting lodge. The prominent salt kiln frames this enchanting place.

You come to a fork in the path and continue to the right along path no. 201 in a northeasterly direction. After about 1.5 kilometers you reach the enchanting Elmsee and can already see the Pühringerhütte.

Return along the same path.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
