Sankaška koča se nahaja v pogorju Kamniško-Savinjskih Alp, le nekoliko višje od cerkve svetega Petra nad Begunjami. 
The Sankaška Hut is situated in the nort-western part of Kamnik- Savinja Alps, just slightly higher than the church of St. Peter near Begunje, featuring stunning views of Lake Bled, Radovljica and the Julian Alps mountain range. The panoramic terrace in front of Sankaška hut is a fabulous place for a refreshing drink or a bowl of warm soup. Open all year round (Wednesday to Sunday). The hut is accessible from Begunje, and in municipality of Žirovnica from Rodine village, from where it runs along the thirs stage of the Juliana Trail. Less than one-hour walk is marked as easy, though the path is sometimes steep. The walk can be extended to Smukuški vrh or to St. Peter’s church.
