Our recent Mount Triglav Climb
We started the ascent to Triglav in Krma valley, where a guide was waiting for us. He introduced us to the course of the tour. In the beginning, the path led us through a hardened forest and led us through a pine forest to a nice grassy plain called the Vrtača. We opened a view of the valley of Krma and the remains of Mali Draški Vrh. We had a short break along the beautiful views and continued to the shepherd’s hut on the Upper Krma Mountain. From there we set off on a busy terrain, across Kalvarija towards Triglavski dom na Kredarici, which is the highest mountain hut in Slovenia.
Triglav’s summit was already in the palm of the hand, but we decided to take a little rest in front of him and enjoy the views. Before the ascent, the guide informed us about the proper use of the self-winding kit, which we needed for the secured part of the path to the top. We needed a few more minutes from the hut to get to the place with the first skyscrapers and cabel. More caution was needed here and concentration, as the ascent along the secured path is rather exposed but technically not too difficult.
Soon we reached the ridge of Mali Triglav, after which, with the help of steelmen, we soon reached the highest peak of Slovenia. From the top we opened a glimpse of his neighbors Škrlatico, Kanjavec, Razor, Prisojnik, Jalovec, Rjavino and Martuljek mountains. The view reaches some famous European peaks. In the north and northwest, three-thirds of the Austrian High Grosglockner, Venedigger, Sonnblick and in the west, even some Dolomites symbols, such as Tofana and Civetta. Towards the south you can see the karst plateau all the way to the Adriatic Sea. When PO KRŠČENJU we greeted the sightings, we celebrated the conquest of Triglav with a baptism in the true style. He followed the descent back to Kredarica, where after a busy day and a delicious dinner we soon started to rest. The next day was intended only to descend into the valley, which in good company and beautiful nature quickly passed.
