WALK SUMMARY

The Schladminger Tauern sit across the deep Enns valley from the mighty Dachstein in the heart of mountainous Austria. They are a maze of high peaks at the end of long ridges and valleys and are very different in feel from the more famous Dachstein to the north - they aren’t limestone, for a start – and walking here is a more typically “Alpine” experience.

Hauser Kaibling is a 2,015m peak above the Schladming cable car top. Relatively easy. Superb views back to the Dachstein. 4.5km/2hrs return.

Walk onward to the 2,543m Höchstein, much of the way on or traversing below a superb ridge of peaks and cliffs. Exposed sections but of the area’s great walks. 11km/5hrs, 850m altitude gain.

This can be tough walking in remote mountains with uncertain weather. Come fully prepared.
