Crisp hike with magnificent views in the direction of Triglav

The Vrata Valley stretches in the north of Slovenia's Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps. It can be reached from the village of Mojstrana in the municipality of Kranjska Gora. Particularly worth seeing is the 52 m high Peričnik waterfall, behind which a narrow path leads. Our tour leads uphill on lonely paths, sometimes very steeply, but as a reward it offers magnificent views of the north face of Triglav.

Profile picture of Svenja Trachte Author Svenja Trachte 
“They take pictures of the mountain climbers at the top of the mountain. They don’t take pictures along the way cause who wants to remember the relentless climb, the pain and anguish of taking it to the next level – nobody takes pictures of that, nobody wants to remember. We just want to remember the view from the top, the breathtaking moment at the edge of the world. That’s what keeps us climbing and it’s worth the pain, that’s the crazy part. It’s worth anything.“ – Anonymous
