This unique karst tour at the foot of the legendary Sturzhahn, which was first climbed by mountaineering icon Heinrich Harrer, is considered an alpine treat.
Distance 14.2 km
The unique mountain scenery of the Tote Gebirge awaits you on this tour: limestone rock slabs, cirques, fossils, alpine flowers peeking out from between the rocks and many sinkholes, the karst funnels so typical of this area. Also almost always in view: the legendary Sturzhahn, whose 200-meter-high west face was first climbed by Heinrich Harrer.
The ascent to the Tragl is only demanding and only for experienced mountain hikers.
Enjoy the high and the panoramic views of the mountain peaks all around!

EquipmentProper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
