The Kötschachtaler Ache is actually an unforgettable highlight in its own right. It has its source at the Tischlerkar at around 2,200 m above sea level, at the foot of the Tischlerkarkogel (3004 m), and is fed by many small streams that flow down from the Tischlerkarsee (cirque glacier). South-east of the Prossau Alpine House, the mountain stream plunges down a series of waterfalls and cliffs into an avalanche basin, where the Kötschachtaler Ache re-forms. To this day, we still find evidence of a powerful rock fall which occurred several years ago, plowing down through the mountain forest and altering the natural course of the stream.
