The Saualpe is an undulating mountain range in southeastern Austria, part of the Levanttaler Alps. These mountains do not reach higher than 2,079 m, the Ladinger Spitze. The mountain ridges are used as pasture and for forestry.
South of the Saualpe lies the plain of the river Drau, and this is where the much more spectacular Savinja Kamnik Alps start, which lie mostly in Slovenia.
In itself it is a nice walking area, easy walking trails and country roads, but considerable heights. It is not especially popular with tourists.
