canyoning, AT

my first ever canyoning. great. the hochalpschlucht in the lechtal valley in tirol, austria, was most likely quite an easy tour ... but for me difficult enough 😄

we've stayed at the gasthof sonne in häselgehr, the probably worst hotel i coud imagine. we have had bunk beds (stockbett) and we were 3 guys in a 6 or 8 people room. by a strange coincidence i took a look in the 'closed' private area just behind a curtain and i've seen two horrific clutterer (messie) rooms which could belong to the owners .... anything positive out there? yes, it was really cheap, the breakfast for 5 € was surprisingly tasty and our canyoning base camp was just vis-à-vis over the street ...

not easy, is it? 😇

the next morning was everything fine: mk-canyoing base camp => village steeg => hochalpschlucht => short introduction => canyoning .... well, i was a little bit afraid, because it was my 1st time +  i've really no talent to handle all that ropes, buckles and handles + there is also already a fear of heights in certain circumstances + i also do not like water in my ears ... you probably ask yourself, why for hell's sake i decided to go there, doesn't you? well, in a weak situation of my mind i just promised my buddy to take part in this year's old boys weekend trip 😇🐋🍀

it was a beautiful experience and i'm happy i've joined the team💓... well, the beer garden afterwards in munich was nice, too 😎🍻🍀

almost all of us in the hochalpschlucht (hopefully indistinct & anonymous enough as
i do not want to 'present' any of my buddies in the internet without asking them before)
i was told our creek enters here the lech river, but it seems to be much to small compared to my believes and memories from its size in germany in füssen / schongau / landsberg / augsburg 😃

few more pictures here.
