A ridge links the peaks of Črna prst, Rodica, Vogel and Veliki Bogatin and rises steeply between Baška grapa and Bohinj. This mountain chain is known as the Lower Bohinj Mountains. The most popular of the peaks is Črna prst (1,844 m) because of the abundance of flora there. The wide variety of plants has been drawing botanists for the last two centuries.
The Adriatic Sea can be seen to the south of the Lower Bohinj Mountains whilst Triglav can be seen to the north. Triglav is the tallest mountain in Slovenia, standing out from the other peaks in the Julian Alps. Vogel (1,922 m) is the name of a peak as well as of the Karstic plateau that climbs from an altitude of 575 m to 1,800 m.
To reach the hut, the trail descends from the ridge down the ski slopes (about 1h) to Vogel skri resort. A cableway runs from the Bohinj valley below to the Ski Hotel and ski slopes on the plateau.
Safety informationThe ridge is exposed so the stage is not recomended in bad weather conditions. Have enough water and food with you.
Tips and hints
Check if the cableways are working at: http://www.vogel.si/winter/ski-center/lifts
If you are fit, you can connect it with the next stage, thus eliminating descend and ascend on the ski slopes to the hut.
