Guidebook to the Karnischer Höhenweg, a 170km high-altitude trek along
the border between Austria and Italy. The route is presented in 8 day
stages of between 6hrs 30mins and 9hrs walking, with suggestions for
making a longer itinerary (up to 2 weeks) and variant routes. Following a
high Alpine trail along the main ridge of the Carnic Alps, the route is clearly
waymarked and requires a reasonable level of fitness, a sense of
adventure and a head for heights, but no special equipment or technical
expertise. It can only be walked in the summer between mid-July and the
end of September.
The Karnischer Höhenweg is a beautiful high Alpine trail above the tree
line, with amazing views of the Dolomites to the south and Hohe Tauern to
the north. Also known as the Friedensweg ('Peace Trail'), it follows the
First World War front line and reminders of the conflict are everywhere.
The Carnic Alps have a unique history and geology and are the location of
some of world's most important geological sites.
Maps and route descriptions are accompanied by information about points
of interest encountered, while background notes give advice on travel,
budget, equipment and planning, as well as the history, geology and
wildlife of the area.
