Partnachklamm, a hell valley that every traveller must trek

In my trip to Germany, I stayed in the bavarian Alps and visited places like Neushwanstain castle, konigsee lake, and Zugspitze, which are popular tourist destinations. While, Partnachklamm was not so popular, but to my surprise, it became the most amazing experience of my life.

Partnachklamm is a gorge, also known as Hell Valley, located in a town called Garmisch-Partenkirchen. There was a kilometer long scenic trek to reach Partnachklamm. The path way was lush green with colorful trees and flowing river. One of the perks of travelling in Autumn season is that nature becomes so colorful.

Entrance to Partnachklamm

The entrace leads to small caves and narrow pathways. Only one person could walk at a time in most of the trek. The valley was too narrow and too dark at certain turns. There were gorgeous small waterfalls on the way. The sound of river was enthralling at many spots.

Do you see a little rainbow forming in the waterfall?

On the other end of the gorge, can you spot it in the background? It was that narrow..
