Zeleniške Špice Ridge

1-Day Tour, Kamniška Bistrica to Kamniška Bistrica

Considered the most beautiful ridge in Slovenia, crossing the Zeleniške Špice ridge is a unique experience reserved for the adventurous bunch. Not many ridges offer a constant moderate challenge across their full length, yet the Zeleniške Špice ridge is exactly that. Not too difficult, but enough to finish the climb in a particularly great mood, probably also due to stunning broad views of the Kamnik Alps. Suitable also for the less experienced explorers of the unmarked mountains, who wish to experience alpinist challenges of moderate difficulty first-hand.

Itinerary

We start in Kamniška Bistrica, a glacial valley below the beautiful Kamnik-Savinja Alps, and head towards Repov Kot. The path passes small waterfalls and pools of water, and then slowly enters the climbing part of the tour. I/II climbing across the ridge passes the Stanič Peak and ends at the Srebrno Sedlo Pass, a perfect place to rest in grass. We return along an easier path down to Kamniška Bistrica.
