The Maukspitze represents the easternmost independent summit of the Kaisergebirge mountains. To the east is the crest of the Niederkaiser, to the west the Maukspitze borders on the Ackerlspitze. To the south, the Maukspitze falls steeply and abruptly (Niedersessel, Hochsessel), in places with vertical rock faces, into the Leukental towards St. Johann in Tirol. To the north the Maukspitze drops equally sharply into the Kaiserbach valley.
