Dolomitenlauf completed

Virgen village in Hohe Tauern national park

It's snowy and beautiful in Austria at this time of the year. Hohe Tauern national park in east Tirol is one of the most beautiful national parks I have been visiting. Grossvenediger, which is 4th highest mountain in Austria. It's best to visit during summertime when hiking trails are open. 

Dolomitenlauf in Obertilliach

Dolomitenlauf is the most famous long distance ski event in Austria. It was held today and the scenery during the race is beautiful. The start and finish are located in Obertilliach village and the ski event will be held at the altitude of 1200 - 1600 m. Fortunately my body is adapting to higher altitude quite easily and I didn't had any problems on that. Physically the route was quite demanding with total of 750 ascend meters.
