Photo: Winter Frozen Waterfall Salzburger Land Austria

During the winter in the Wildgerlos Valley in the Salzburger Land of Austria, Europe, the Leitenkammerklamm waterfall becomes partly frozen but still has flowing water underneath a sheet of ice.

Snow piles rest atop the rocks alongside a pool of water during the winter in the Wildgerlos Valley in the Salzburger Land of Austria, Europe while a waterfall becomes frozen. Around the base of the rocks, a small sheet of ice forms in ring formations as the waterfall stops dead in its track as the chilly temperatures in the Wildgerlos Valley are below freezing.

The winter chill can bring in some extremely cold winds, but the beauty of the landscape when these conditions hit is picturesque. Not only is the waterfall frozen, but the snow is also frozen to the rocks and will not melt until the weather warms up enough for it to thaw. This can take a fair bit longer in the Wildgerlos Valley than it can around the main area of the cities.

Summer hiking through the Wildgerlos Valley in the Salzburger Land of Austria is very pleasant but challenging. ... continue below the picture...

... The proper hiking gear is required as you will climb steep cliffs where you will finally reach the Wildgerlos Glacier terrain, a beautiful lake and the alpine pastures where cattle are raised.

During the winter, skiing is exceptional but the temperatures throughout each valley and the high mountain peaks can become extremely frigid. Always be prepared and only experienced winter hikers should trek through Wildgerlos Valley in the Salzburger Land in Austria to view the beauty of a frozen glacier waterfall.
