közel Hintertriebental, Styria (Austria)
Triebental is a valley running south-eastward from a mountain pass of Hohentauern and it's an ideal starting point to hike these remote mountains. There're actually only three accommodation options available in Triebental - guest house Braun and Austrian Alpine Club's Triebental Hut approximately halfway up the valley and Bergerhube at the upper end of Triebental; but you can sleep rough or raise a tent virtually anywhere as the area is not a protected one. There's also a couple of small parking lots within the valley positioned near to the hiking trails to leave a car if you're in for a one day hike.
This particular hike started at Bergerhube again but took us in the opposite direction than before, into the northeastearn slopes above the Triebental valley. Once you get to the trail intersection at the mountain saddle of Bärensuhlsattel, there are interconnecting trails going either north-eastward to Wald am Schoberpass or south-eastward to the adjacent Seckauer Tauern range (including the major peaks of Geierhaupt and Hochreichhart). However our aim was to hike the ridge od Himmeleck and return to the valley by trekking the mountain meadows and grazings of Moaralm. And it proved to be a really pleasant one as the ridge is completly covered by grass and shrubs without any steep rocky passages and offers stunning views of neighbouring mountain ranges.
Highly recommended if you´re in for a long yet undemanding hike.
