Even if the name of the Tote Gebirge suggests a barren, vegetationless landscape, its extensive peripheral areas, especially in the Styrian part, surprise with soft contours, sparse mountain forests and colorful alpine pastures. This is also the location of the Kampl, which offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Styrian Salzkammergut and the surrounding mountains from its 1685-meter-high summit plateau: From the glaciers of the Dachstein over the crowns of the Tote Gebirge to the rugged rocky slopes of the Grimming to the lower Tauern.

EquipmentProper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
