Triglav Via Ferrata ascent description
Meeting with a guide and transfer from your accommodation to the starting point.
Start the tour in a beautiful Vrata alpine glacial valley at an elevation of 1015m in Triglav National Park. Firstly, the path leads under a large north wall with a breathtaking view of Mt. Triglav north face, 3 km wide and also 1 km tall. After a while, a wide trail through the forest changes to a narrow and a steeper one below the scree. The view of a north face follows us all the way up to the Luknja saddle on 1758 m, an old passage between Sava and Soča river valley. (2h 30 min)
After a break continues on a very demanding trail, which climbs up almost vertically from the saddle. Slowly ascend with the protection of a guide and cables. Soon, the trail becomes less steep, but it’s still very exposed. In the same way continue along the ridge, with an amazing view over the famous Sphinx (the sternest Triglav pillar).
In addition, see the ruins from World War I. and continue over scree to the rocky wall, where are some cables and also pitons for easier progression to the Western Triglav plateau. (3h)
After Triglav stuber steep, but the well-secured trail leads to the peak ridge and then the top of Mt Triglav. (1h)
Triglav Via Ferrata descent
Once on the highest Slovenian mountain, you will enjoy amazing views around you and get some rewarding rest. After that follows descent on a different trail to Triglav hut on Kredarica plateau. Over there enjoy traditional Slovenian mountain dinner in a hut and after that overnight in a dorm. Next day in the morning descent down to Vrata valley on a path over Prag. The path is much easier than the first day, even though there is a short section of the route where the help of cables and pitons is needed. (5h)
Furthermore, here are other routes to Mount Triglav, which all have in their final part Via Ferrata characteristics. So you can choose, for example Triglav from Krma Valley, Triglav from Pokljuka or Triglav across Seven Lakes Valley. In other words, you can not conquer the Triglav peak without climbing over Ferrata.
