The 30 Highest Summits of Austria

Tick off some of the most incredible mountains in the heart of the Alps!

Kilian Echallier

Description

FATMAP Pro Ambassador, Kilian Echallier, planned and researched a list of Austria's highest summits that had at least 150m of prominence - at least 150m difference between it and the next nearest summit.

You'll find all of his tracked routes in this Guidebook and hopefully it will motivate and inspire you to visit some of these mountains, or even come up with your own challenge!

Kilian completed his challenge in of climbing all 30 in 8 months and 23 days and in doing so, he discovered some of the most spectacular and unknown areas of Austria.
