SATURDAY MORNING – We started the hike around 9 o’clock from Pokljuka (Rudno polje). The path leads first to the plateau Konjščica and into a dense forest to the Studorski Preval. Pause! We continued to the top of the Studorski Preval and then wow! Amazing view on the Bohinj area and path that leads straight. After a couple of minutes, we reached the southern slopes of mountain Tosc. We continued straight along the scenic path, which starts to turn more and more to the right. From exposed area of falling stones (attention! active landslide!) we finally came to the first hut – Vodnikov Dom na Velem Polju (1,817 meters).
After little break by the hut, you just need to follow the path straight to Triglav. After 40 minutes you will come to crossroads. Or choose Planika hut or Triglav Lodge (Kredarica hut). We choose the Triglav Lodge because we spend the night there. After one hour a relatively steep path leads you to the top in the hut where you can enjoy the magnificent views.
Sunsets in the mountains are the best ♥
SUNDAY MORNING – waking up at 5 a.m and starting the hike at 6 am was crucial. Coming up at around 7 a.m. with almost no people it is PRICELESS!
To go down we choose a path from Small Triglav to Planika hut. From the top to Pokljuka with all stops we needed 6 hours.
There are so many paths to hike to the top Triglav, that any you choose it is hard! There is no easy path to Triglav! The proper gear like helmets, it is obligatory! But the views reward you at the end of the day 😉
Triglav is with 2,864 meters the highest mountain in Slovenia. You can find it in the Slovenian flag. “When you reach the top of Triglav, you become a real Slovenian”, they said!
Cheers for next adventures!
