Obertrauner Mountain Moments: Guided hiking tour with Martha!

The Zwölferkogel (1979 m) is a rarely visited summit in the Dachstein region with many chamois and marmots. Our route leads from the Gjaid Alm valley station (1733 m) along partly well-marked paths but also on unmarked trails towards the summit. Many small and larger sinkholes have to be bypassed and many a rocky outcrop climbed over.

At the Zwölferkogel summit, the view of the Dachstein, Tennengebirge, Höllengebirge, Krippenstein and down to Lake Hallstatt is simply breathtaking. The cross was suggested in 1996 by Hans Schilcher, the landlord of the Gjaid Alm hut at the time. Since then, many mountain masses have been held on the ‘Zwölfer’ and numerous hikers and ski tourers are happy to sign the summit book. After a rest at the summit, you return along almost the same route with a detour to the Soachenklamm gorge, which is only known to very few insiders. At the very chilled Gjaid Alm, we fortify ourselves with excellent hut fare.
