Triglav, the highest peak in the Julian and Slovenia

Climbed in the week the Triglav, which with its 2864 meters is the highest mountain in the Julian Alps and Slovenia. And 'it considered a mountain "sacred" by the Slovenians, who, with great patriotism - it is said - have to climb it at least once in life. The climbing routes are all railways, certain bold. The biggest danger is made by the high attendance (just by the Slovenians, who are a sort of pilgrimage), this makes the risk falling stones more than seriously. The mountain is inserted in an exceptional natural environment (National Park) and it's worth taking a few days to enjoy the surroundings.

All the other mountains in the area are interesting ... severe slopes, great differences in altitude and, unlike Triglav, are places where solitude is in force, nobody meets. There are some nice bivouacs as a point of support.


PS The Slovenians are very happy and enthusiastic, in the evening at the refuge have made 2 am playing accordions and dancing ... in the morning there were people who slept under the tables in the dining room! Never seen anything like that ... very fun!

They tell me of winters snow loads ...
In fact I saw the pictures hanging in the refuge taken in cold weather, with mountaineers struggling with spectacular climbs, in an almost Himalayan environment.
