The somewhat longer section east of the Plöckenpass offers a gentle mountain landscape with extensive alpine meadows and easy hiking mountains. West of the Plöckenpass, the more interesting alpine section stretches along the highest peaks of the Carnic Ridge. The alpine long-distance hiking trail leads through a scenically extremely beautiful and varied area.
Safety informationMostly alpine terrain, especially in the western part of the Karnischen Höhenweg. Sure-footedness, freedom from vertigo and the ability to climb easy climbing sections are required. Conditionally partly very demanding.
