Karnischer Alpen

Description

Karnischer Alpen

Squeezed in between the Dolomites in the south, and the Lienzer Dolomites in the northwest, it is surprising that this mountain range – the Carnic Alps - does nót consist of limestone. The area has a green overall appearance.

There are lots of trails hewn out of the rocks by soldiers during the first world war. The range is more or less one, long ridge, and this was the frontier between Italy and Austria.

From east to west, a string of Italian and Austrian mountain huts make it easy to follow the ridge without ever descending. The Karnischer Höhenweg (or E10, Via Alpina, Südalpenweg) follows this ridge. The range ends where the Karawanken start, near Villach. The area is not very crowded. Highest summit is the Hohe Warte, 2.780 m.
