Via Ferrata Hias

Open
Hias is a beautiful Via Ferrata route in the Silberkar gorge, named after the man who built it.

A samall, sporty and rather "zesty" via ferrata close to the valley, making it very suitable for climbers who are not necessarly athletes. The via ferrata itself is short but sweet. The natural setting was used to perfection - two beatiful rope bridges and some steepish rockfaces are the result. The gorge is a grat family hike. Whilst sportierfamily can simply enjoy the trail through the gorge.

Please note: the gorge is privately owned by the Erlbacher family. The entrance fee is used to repair the path and maintain the via ferratas.
