The Karnische Höhenweg or "Friedensweg" leads along the entire Karnische Kamm, which runs along the border between Austria and Italy.
Distance 137.8 km
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.
In addition to the conventional course of the Carnic High Trail, challenging summit ascents such as Gr. Kinigat, Filmoorhöhe, Porze, Monte Peralba, Hohe Warte and others can be included (partly on fixed rope routes). We recommend a 2-3 day extension - with additional overnight stays at the Filmoorhütte or the Untere Valentin Alm.
