Viševnik

Half-Day Tour, start from Pokljuka, pick-up in Bled or Bohinj

Discover an amazing peak above Pokljuka, just 20km from Bled. Comfortably accessible and with astonishing views of Triglav, amazing neighboring peaks and rolling hilltops of Pokljuka and Bohinj, Viševnik is one of the most rewarding and popular mountains in Slovenia. Not too demanding and suitable also for the less experienced, yet equally beautiful, it is one of those mountains you will never forget.

Itinerary

We park at the recreational center's parking lot at Rudno Polje on Pokljuka, only to follow a nice forest trail to the old ski slopes not far away and then further up the slope until the view is clear and open to the whole beautiful south face of the mountain. From there on, it's nothing but pleasure to walk up enjoying nice views of the forest-covered hills of Pokljuka. What is most stunning about the route are the views of the other side of the mountain where Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain, stands so close you could most probably grasp it. No matter how many times you've conquered Viševnik, the view from the top never gets old, truly. The ascent is a mere 2-hour walk, while the descent is usually over in half the time.
