We've made our way down the Inn to Mils and are looking across the Inn floodplain toward the Tschirgant, a mountain about ten kilometers (six miles) away. The Tschirgant has a striking pyramidal profile from here, but in fact we're only looking at the end of a major ridge that forms the north side of the Inn valley east of Imst. An east-west tunnel under the south (right) side of this mountain carries the A12 Autobahn through a narrow part of the Inn valley, and a north-south tunnel directly through the mountain from Nassereith to Haiming has been proposed to bring traffic from north of Imst into the Inn valley. We'll see the southern flanks of the Tschirgant in our next few images.
