Mountaineering in the Hochkönig region
Mountaineering and climbing around the Feriendorf Stallergut and the Haus Miller in the Hochkönig region
You are on your way to a great summit in the "sea of rocks" mountain range. The path starts right behind the village Maria Alm. Looking at the summit from down the valley, it looks awfully far and steep. The "Schönfeldspitze" is far and it won't be easy to get there. The path gets steeper and steeper and right before the Buchauer-ridge it's really hard. On the way from the ridge to the summit it is better if you are free from any giddiness - the way is exposed and you better should not fall. Neberthelss, the view from the summit is amazing and it was worth all the stress and strain ...
Mountaineering in the Hochkönig region is quite different from hiking. When you go hiking in our region you move on the grass mountains and have a nice view to the stone mountains. When you are mountaineering, climbing or go for one of the famous "via ferratas" in the Hochkönig region, you have a nice view to the grass mountains in the south. Behind the fairly low grass mountains, you can see the high peaks of the Hohen Tauern with their glaciers and snow fields.
Climbing and mountaineering in the Hochkönig region have a long tradition.
