Ankogel (3,252m) is part of the Ankogel mountain group. It is the second highest peak in the group. The view from the summit of this mountain is absolutely fantastic. Not only will you be able to see the Kaiser mountain range’s many peaks, you will also get to see the gorgeous Dolomite mountains, and even the Grossglockner (3,798m), which is the highest mountain in the country.

As a result of the cable car, or the Ankogelbahn, as it is called, from Mallnitz to the mountain station (2,631m), the actual climb will be only 650 metres. Thus making the mountain one of the more easily accessible peaks in the area.

From the mountain station, we will walk along the Tauernhohenweg to the Radeckscharte. After that we will slowly and safely climb the ridge until we reach the summit. The climb will have difficult spots, and there will be times when you will be roped in. However, despite the challenge, the Ankogel peak can still be climbed by people who are not experts, but some mountaineering experience is necessary.

The climbing time from the mountain station to the summit and back will be approximately 6 to 7 hours.

The Ankogel group mountain range has some amazing mountains. And the Ankogel mountain itself is definitely an amazing mountain. So if you want to spend a day climbing this wonderful peak to its summit, where you can view a vast amount of the surrounding Alps, contact me, and let me guide you.

Are you interested in scaling the Watzmann’s famous East wall in Germany? If you are, I can also lead you on this 2 day climb.
