Prisojnik South Route
1-Day Tour, start from Vršič Pass, pick-up in Krajska Gora
Explore the massive mountain that raises proudly above Kranjska Gora in the heart of the Triglav National Park. Although there are several secured routes that lead to Prisojnik (Prisank) with most of them being excesively demanding, only one route winding through the south face doesn’t call for extreme efforts. Mostly sunny and a very panoramic route, combined with just how incredibly impressive this mountain actually is, assures for a real mountaineering experience.
After parking at the mountain pass Vršič, possibly by the Erjavčeva Hut, we'll adventure out to explore Prisojnik, one of the most popular Slovenian mountains easily accessible from the road. We'll follow a trail in the midst of high mountains and pass countless sheep grazing freely by the road and people enchanted by the surrounding beauty. The easy trail will continue over a grassy peak called Sovna Glava, then over vast talus slopes under the rocky face of Prisojnik, and then further up a more and more demanding terrain until we finally reach the top in about 3.5 hours. After enjoying stunning views from the top, we slowly head down the same trail, which should take us back down to the Vršič mountain pass in no longer than 3 hours.
