The king tour in Flachau to the Faulkogel 2654m.
The Faulkogel with 2654m is one of the highest elevations of the lower Tauern. For experienced mountaineers this tour is a unique highlight. From the rear Marbachalm, after a short warm-up, the ascent begins. The intensive and demanding climb leads us over serpentine paths up to the Neukar. Rope protections are always on exposed places. A highlight is also the "Kamin", a climbing passage with rope protection - surefootedness and shingles are required! Arrived at the summit you can enjoy a picture-book view of the surrounding mountains. Pay attention to local conditions - for example, in July there is often still snow in the chimney, which makes it much more difficult.
