PHOTO - Check out my hiking trip along the Escapardenne Eislek Trail through the Belgian and Luxembourg Ardennes. In 7 photos I show you the hiking trail with my own remarkable view.
1. La Roche-en-Ardenne
I just left La Roche-en-Ardenne in Belgium, the starting point of the Escapardenne Eislek Trail. The next few days I will hiking for 104 km from here to Kautenbach in Luxembourg.
21,5 km I did on day 1 of my hiking trip. I walked from La Roche-en-Ardenne to Nadrin. Where I slept on some camping site. I had a lot of climbs with on the top some amazing views, like this on. In the background you can spot Maboge.
3. Lake Nisramont
The 2nd day of my hiking trip along the Escapardenne Eislek Trail I did 24,5 km. I hiked from Nadrin to Houffalize. I had a lot of rain sometimes and that made it was very slippery on all the climbings I had to do. The most of times it was forest and mountains with halfway some magnificent views on Lake Nisramont and the river Ourthe.
30,5 km I walked day 3 on the Escapardenne Eislek Trail. I crossed the border and I'm now in Luxembourg. The whole way from the Belgian Houffalize to Troisvierges in Luxembourg was a landscape with slightly sloping hills and amazing summer weather. This picture is taken in the valley of the little river Trëtterbaach close to Sassel in Luxembourg.
Taking a little break and enjoying from all the wonderful views and the lovely weather on my hiking tour. Day 4 I have 28 km Luxembourg ground under my hiking shoes. I walked on the Escapardenne Eislek Trail from Troisvierges, via Clervaux to Wilwerwiltz. This pictures is taken in the late afternoon when I saw from the top of the mountain my destination Wilwerwiltz on the other site of the valley.
My last and 5th day of hiking on the Escapardenne Eislek Trail I left already the camping site at 7 o'clock in the morning. I just had to do a half day walking from Wilwerwiltz to Kautenbach to finish the complete hiking trail. 16,5 km I walked my last day. It was the first time in 5 days I noticed it was very foggy in the morning. But I like this, because it makes the nature even more beautiful to take pictures from.
After 5 days hiking throught the mountains of the Belgian and Luxembourg Ardennes I reached the small village Kautenbach, also my end destination. The Escapardenne Eislek Trail was 104 km, at the end I walked something like 120 km during these 5 days because I did some extra point of view. What I go to miss this already.
