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

The terrain has been skillfully used in constructing the Via Ferrata, as shown by two beautiful rope bridges and a couple of tricky passages across the rock walls. The Hias climbing route is close to the valley and easy to get to through the Silberkar Canyon.

 

The Silberkar hike offers a great day out for the whole family: some may enjoy hiking through the canyon, others might venture along the protected climbing path.

Safety information

Hiking Via Ferrata routes is a demanding sport in rugged terrain. For your safety, please observe the following rules: 

  • Via Ferrata routes are demanding and require a good level of fitness, no hight vertigo and sure-footedness. 
  • Always use a helmet and, a Via Ferrata kit to attach yourself to the safety rope. Many mountain rescue missions are a result of carelessness and bad weather conditions. 
  • Many routes require most of the day. When planning a tour, always include the possibility of a sudden change of weather. Be prepared: carry spare clothing and a good stock of food supplies. 
  • Always show respect towards fellow mountaineers. Inform them about possible dangers if need be. 
  • Take care of our environment. Only take photographs and memories with you - leave no trace.
