Our first hike to over 1014 meters
Mittagskogel from side of Worther Lake
1014 meters is the altitude of Hungary highest point;), the peak name is Kékes. A part of our report displayed below:
We had to go only a small distance by car from our Klagenfurt
accomodation to starting spot. We started too late. We left the car in
an outlying parking place of a hotel with some fear, but we trusted in
the poni horse in the backyard nearby, hoping it will snarl at everybody
who dares to lurk around the Reanult with the plate number starting
with an H. The landscape started with a pine forest, and we went ahead
towards a speedy brook. The slope was harder for a short time. We
glimpsed the conical top of Mittagskogel when we left the last pine
trees, and our reaction was "whada**". The sight was beautiful. What a
pity we won't be here at sunset, because it had a beautiful sight.
Later we managed to returned here during the sunset, which only proves
that we weren't aware of the amount of time needed for such a high
mountain hike. The landscape had changed to plain then we continued our
hike on a more and more steeper dirt road. We reached record heights, as
we soon left the altitude of Kékes.
The road wound so wide, that a car would fit on it, but it was so steep
that only the nearby hut owners could travel here by their extra special
all terrain cars. The tourist path went off the dirt road, and we rose
in a pine forest. We had been going for an hour, when I became thristy
and I asked for some from the others. They would have had to provide for
the water. As it turned out, the water bottle had been left in the car,
so we had only a little water and warm, sour tee, but I didn't want
that. We would survive somehow or other, I thought.
