Beginner's hike at Untersberg, Salzburg Austria + Vlog

Sunday, March 22, 2020


One of the best perks of having the Salzburg Card was the admission in Untersberg cable car. It is something you don't want to miss. And do it first thing in the morning. We plan to actually also go to the Eagle's Nest aside from Untersberg but we ran out of time (although we start early) and we were full already by seeing Untersberg itself. If you want to experience both then make another day set aside for another mountain. It was a breath of fresh air climbing mountains again. Don't get me wrong I like mountains but I am not a climber type. I remember the last time we went up a steep hill somewhere in Hungary, I almost lost it. I can't say that I am afraid of heights but one thing is for sure I am afraid of falling down. Lol. 

By the way, the normal cost of it for the cable car ride up and downhill was 25 euros. When you have the Salzburg card, you got the entry pass up and downhill. Being early gives you a lot of advantages. Their opening times is around 9am. So better be there once they open. We were lucky to be there on time and not a lot of people still on the line. You can buy your pet dog a ticket uphill too!

It wasn't really that scary going uphill. It was safe and you could see some rope they are probably using. I really thought the cable car ride was the start and end of our mountain sightseeing.

Apparently, we have to hike more which we weren't so much geared of. Thankfully, for beginners, if you follow the guided path, it will not be that difficult going up. Hey, it wasn't easy but it wasn't also difficult for a newbie like me. The weather was around 10-15 degrees. Thank God, it did not rain anytime during the hike because it will be totally dangerous. We were there Autumn season which has a chilly and some rainy weather.

It doesn't take us too long to get to the top. One thing I learned when climbing up some mountains in the future. I just need one buddy who I could talk to and take a photo of me and with me with every little accomplishment until making it to the top. We were heading to the top but the best memories I had was the path we stumbled together throughout the hike. The beauty on the top hill was our reward. It is no secret the beauty uphill that was waiting for us but with the accomplishment sealed with it climbing on top makes it more worthy.

The memories that I only have climbing on top was only beautiful and happy memories. I forgot how tiring, hard or painful it was going up there. I think that's how it should be. That's the best thing about it, actually. I told you at first that I am not the climber type but I am now considering some beginner's hike. Just something like this one here in Untersberg.

Surprisingly, going down was no match for me. I did it so well. I am like spider woman going downwards without ease. 

Well, of course, there were still a lot of paths going somewhere else here in this mountain. It just all begins here. For us, for now, it is just the beginning of the end. 

To more hikes. Xoxo
P.S Shoutout to my Korean hike buddy who I forgot by now the name. She makes it up with me throughout the hike, although she plans not to finish (well, I understand her. She was on her summer sandals). But seriously, the time she probably thought I only gave her the motivation. She did the same way to me too. I wouldn't be more motivated without her.

Here is my Untersberg VLOG!

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.
