Start the walk near Savica waterfall at an altitude of 650 m. Follow the path which goes through the beautiful forest of birch and beech trees and gets steep. At some parts, the use of cables helps us progress easier. Reach wonderfull Black Lake (1294 m) surrounded with high spruce trees, the first one in the valley of Seven Triglav Lakes. (1h 30 min)
Time for some rest and a snack.
Continue on a much more gentle path through a mysterious primeval forest of Lopučnica mountain valley. After a while, the trail gets steeper again, but it’s comfortable path in the shade of the forest. Reach the top of the slope and soon after a Triglav hut at a beautiful Double Lake (1685 m), a perfect spot to rest (1h 30 min).
After a break continues on a gradually ascending route through the valley of seven lakes. Enjoy the change of the scenery as it will change to a more rocky one, but still fulfilled with green fields. Reach Kidney Lake and after a while another one, Green Lake. Time for a short break. (1h 30 min)
Leave the valley of Seven lakes and continue on a much steeper trail, which goes across a scree all the way up to Hribarice plateau. Scenery changes to a high alpine world, full of rocks, abysses, and karstic sinkholes. Some amazing views will appear around you. (1h)
After a short break continues downwards over a scree towards Dolič hut on 2151 m. Once you reach the hut you are done with climbing for that day. Time for traditional Slovenian mountain dinner and some rest. (45 min)
Next day early in the morning continues climbing towards the summit. First, the trail leads over a scree and some rocky walls where the help of cables is needed. Get the first glimpse of Mt. Triglav. Continue towards a mountain hut Planika (2400 m) steep upwards. The hut will be the place where you overnight. (1h 30 min)
Gradually climb up towards the summit. This is the most demanding part of the climb, but with a professional guidance and a proper equipment, you will be completely safe. You will get via ferrata kits (lanyard, helmet, and a harness) and ascend in a company of your guide will be a memorable experience. Along the way, there are cables and pitons for easier progression. First, we reach Mali Triglav peak and then continue on the ridge with unforgettable views towards the bigger brother, Mt. Triglav (2864m). Once on the highest Slovenian mountain, you will enjoy amazing views all around you. (2h)
A slow descent down to Planika mountain hut. (1h 45min)
Dinner at the hut and overnight in a cozy dorm. After breakfast start descending towards Vodnik mountain hut (1817 m). The trail goes over a rocky terrain steep downwards, but it’s not exposed. (1h 30 min)
