  Mayrhofen and the Penken gondola
by desert_princess

Further down the road , at your left side ,by the town of Jenbach is the entrance of the famous Zillertal - a valley with a wide bottom and majestic mountain ridges surrounding it on both sides.
Named after the Ziller river that is responsible of forming it , it includes the villages of Fugen , Ried ,Kaltenbach, Achau , Zell am Ziller , Hippach , Schwendau ,Mayrhofen ,Finkenberg.
After Mayrhofen it splits in two valleys , the left one leading to Gerlos and the Krimml waterfalls ( a majestic sight , from what I heard ) , and the right valley taking you to Tux and the Hintertux Glacier.
