The Dead Mountains are are one of the most distinguished mountain ranges in the Northern Limestone Alps in Upper Austria and Styria.

With a surface of 1130 km², it is the Europe largest karst plateau caracterized, in the east, by a dry landscape of sharp limestone peaks above 2000 m, sinkholes and caves.

The highest point is the summit of Großer Priel (2515 m / 8251 ft).

This crossing leads through mountain forests, oversized flower-filled meadows and the heavily karstified and partially devoid of vegetation plateau with fossilized shells, snails and corals, sinkholes and caves.
