vicino Hintertriebental, Styria (Austria)

Triebener Tauern is a minor subrange of Lower Tauern, a mountain range of the Central Eastern Alps, in the Austrian state of Styria. The mountain ridges adjacent to Triebental are officially considered to be a part of a bigger body of Seckauer Tauern but the locals do distinguish between Triebener and Seckauer Tauern, so I'll stick to it as well.

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 hike starts at the mountain chalet of Bergerhube (the parking is actually for free, but you' re expected to spend some money in the hut when leaving a car there). Then it runs through the valley of Mödringbach (a mountain creek) past the impressive rock formation of Königin (the Queen), up to the plateau with a small lake at 2000m above the sea level where the steep final ascent to the summit of Gamskögel´s western peak begins. There' s an unmarked shortcut going to Kanudachtörl. You just need to traverse the western slope above the valley to get there. From there you can either start descending back to the Modringalm or took another trail going to Triebener Törl (on-route to Sonntagskogel of Großer Grießstein). There´s also an unmarked trail going to Großer Grießstein straight from Knaudachtörl but it appeared to be quite difficult and unsafe.

The photos unattached to a particular waypoint were taken in the mountain saddle just beneath Gamskögel.
