The summits and sheer mountain ridges of Austria’s ‘Little Siberia’ funnel the freezing air from snow-covered peaks into a gigantic hollow – a huge Plateau at 1.000 meters altitude from which it cannot escape: Lungau is Austria’s coldest region. Its creeks and streams start higher up and create bogs, moors and countless alpine lakes. Summer is short here. Bearded vultures patrol the mountains looking for carcass – chamois which have not survived the winter. Alpine Salamanders inhabit regions up to the forest boundary.
