The Mangfall River is 63km long. It flows out of Lake Tegernsee into the River Inn, a major tributary of The Danube. The so-called Mangfall Knieweg, a trekking route starting from the village of Valley, is about 11km. The sudden appearance of a dozen or so camels caught us by surprise.

A visit to the starting point village Reit im WInkl is a great day out in itself. Close to the Austrian border it was once a customs village in pre-Shengen days.

In contrast it has one of the highest counts of sunny days in Bavaria - and the day we arrived was no exception - as the pictures show!
