Approximately a half-an-hour drive from Bled, in the very heart of the Triglav National Park, which is at its 838 square kilometers the largest protected area in Slovenia, a plethora of dreamy hiking trails connect valleys with the rugged mountainous world. One of them is a picturesque trail from the Vrata Valley to a high-Alpine plateau set underneath prominent 2.5K peaks. Named after the 2,410-m-tall mountain Križ, the Kriški Podi plateau is home to countless marmots, chamois and Alpine ibexes. Yet that’s not all. The fairytale hike lets you soak up breathtaking views of the highest mountain of Slovenia, Mt. Triglav, and its 3-km wide and 1-km tall Triglav North Face. With sheer rock walls towering all around you and the land so bountiful with wild animals, it feels like being in the middle of remote and dangerous mountains, while in reality it’s the very opposite. The steel cable secures only a couple of more exposed sections on the otherwise technically easy trail, and is as such appropriate for anyone normally fit and with a hearty sense of adventure.

Exploring Slovenia is at Matkov Kot in Matkov Škaf.

Matkov škaf, a formation of snow and ice that occurs every year. Apparently the snow avalanches falling down from Mt. Mrzla Gora pile up during the winter months, and then as it gets warmer a waterfall forms instead, falling onto the pilled up snow, and creating a deep hole. That can serve as a nice playground for climbers 🙌😎Photo by 📸 @sasa.podpecan ...
