Medium difficulty level tour.  One of the most spectacular viewpoints of Bohinj. 
  • The slopes on the southern side of the mountain hide an entrance into the cave Govic, where a waterfall Govic appears whenever there's heavy rainfall.
  • Marjan Lipovšek, a Slovenian pianist, composer and alpinist, described the peak as »the Balcony of Bohinj«
  • Ski touring is possible (although only recommended for those that know the area well or are accompanied by a guide): touring skis or snowshoes


  • Altitude at the top: 1,761 m
  • The difference in altitude from the valley to the top is almost 1200 meters
  • It takes approx. 4 hours to reach the top and 3 hours to descend
  • There’s a visitors’ box at the top
  • The trails to Pršivec are marked and of medium-difficulty level

When taking the trail leading through Komarča, we recommend using a helmet as well as an ice-pick and crampons in the winter time
