Geography[edit]

Ragga Ravine

The peak rises south of the villages of Flattach and Obervellach in the Möll valley. From Obervellach a footpath leads past the Polinikhaus lodge (1,873 m (6,145 ft), run by Mölltal Section of the Austrian Alpine Club) to the summit.

From Flattach the mountain may be climbed through the 200 m (660 ft) deep Ragga Ravine (Raggaschlucht), a protected natural monument, where a winding boardwalk leads across numerous waterfalls up to the Raggaalm pasture.
