On this trail you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Julian Alps. Through the journey we conquer a few peaks in the Alps while we rest on each day in a mountain hut. The trail can be done in fewer days if you are that fit, but to really feel the joy of hiking it should be done in more days.

All around us are mountains stretching to the sky, leaving a beautiful scenery. Also we can ascend to Kanjavec(2569) peak which is the souther neighbour of Mt. Triglav.

Thanks for your route. Your turn by turn text is misleading. Following your gpx route it seems on day 3 you stayed in vodnikov dom hut in stead of the krmi hut which lies at least 5 clicks further away from the route.. I had alrdy booked the wrong hut. If you use this route pls double check the huts to avoid my mistake.. Now i had better check the vodnikov dom hut lol
