Mohar is a 2.604m high summit in the Goldberg group of the Hohe Tauern in the Austrian destrict of Carinthia. The summit is high above the Asten valley, a side valley of the Mölltal (valley). The Asten valley area is perfect for hiking: the summits are smooth and the ways are mostly on meadows. Nevertheless you have perfect views to the Goldberg group (Hoher Sonnblick; north), the Glockner group (highest summit of Austria Großglockner north-west), the Schober group (west) and to Sadnig, 2.745m on the opposite side of Asten valley (south-east). On the ‘Waschgang’ (the way to Kluid notch) you can find remains of the ‘gold rush’ in this area: old buildings and galleries.
