the world's most spectacular roads

Großer Oscheniksee

Großer Oscheniksee is a high mountain reservoir at an elevation of 2.390m (7,841ft) above the sea level, located in Carinthia in Austria. It’s an epic, monster, killer climb with a gradient of 20% in some sections. It’s said to be one of the hardest climb of the Alps.

The road to the summit is paved but narrow. It’s impassable from October to June due the snow. The road includes more than 40 hairpin turns. The access is blocked with a barrier nowadays.

This is an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. Starting from Innerfragant, the ascent is 12.2 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 1.429 meters and the average percentage is 11.7 %.
