Welcome in the world of Triglav fairytales!

Triglav and its North Face

Some 200m from the parking place the road ends at Aljažev dom (1,015m). This is the starting point for mountaineering routes to Triglav, Škrlatica and Stenar,  among others.  Triglav (2,864m) has always been a symbol for the Slovenes, especially after the independence of the country in 1991 – in many ways it is the soul of Slovenia. The mountain can be accessed from the three valleys: Vrata, Kot and Krma, and also from Trenta, Pokljuka and Bohinj.

The North Face is one of the mightiest mountain walls in the Alps. Its great width (3km) and height (about 1000m) make a deep and special impression. The biggest height difference is about 1,200m, and its average tilt is 45 degrees. Along the wall, there are many vertical columns and ravines where numerous climbing routes attract rock climbers. The most famous are the Slovene Route, the German Route, and the Central Column.

At its lowest point, the Luknja pass (1,758m) crosses between the two magnificent valleys of the rivers Sava and Soča.
