You enter the Kalser Dorfer valley, which is also considered to be the birthplace of the Hohe Tauern National Park, through the impressive Dabaklamm gorge - the spectacular prospect pulpit in the centre of Dabaklamm gorge is one of the highlights.

If you reach the valley through the gorge, voices of dairymaids, mountain farmers, hut owners and other locals in audio trees tell stories about their life in the valley. These are stories which people only get to hear if they know the storytellers personally - exciting, funny, yet harrowing incidents from many decades. There are also display boards which provide an insight into the nature and culture of the Dorfer valley.
