Travel-Slovenia continues with discovering Slovenia and providing information about possibilities on how to spend time in Slovenia. This time we are heading out to Triglav national park, namely to discover our highest mountain, Triglav. The mountain reaches an altitude of 2864 meters and thus is the highest peak of Julian Alps and at the same time the only peak in Slovenia that exceeds 2800 meters in height. It is a symbol of the Slovenian nation, pioneer of mountaineering Julius Kugy named the mountain a Kingdom. On the top of Triglav is Aljaž’s tower that was brought there by Aljaž and his friend in the year 1895.

Triglav has always stirred the spirits of adventurers and alpinists, who wanted to reach the very top. This was for the first time accomplished on August 26th, 1778 by four people of heart, Luka Korošec, Matevž Kos, Štefan Rožič, and Loverenc Willomitzer. Their monument is located in Bohinj. From the top of Triglav, a beautiful view opens, which reaches into the distance. We can see the Adriatic sea, pass the Dolomites and High Tauern towards Karavanke, Kamnik-Savinja Alps, Pohorje, and pas entire Slovenia towards the highest peaks of Julian Alps. Over time Triglav bore seveal names, like Ocra mons, Krma, Terglau, Terglou and Terklou.

Triglav mountain

Triglav offers many options to spend time in these highlands, we can ascend, with suitable condition and equipment, in one day or you can spend some days in this beautiful environment and discover what it has to offer. If you decide to climb Triglav in one day, we suggest that you start in the early hours, as the whole trip will take you somewhere between ten to eleven hours. In that case, we suggest different ascent routes, from Aljaž’s home in valley Vrata, from Pokljuka, the valley of Krma, the valley of Kot, or from Uskovnica. These routes will take you around six hours to reach the top. You can take one of several different directions – along Tominškov’s path, across Planika and Mali Triglav, pass Kredarica or Triglav notch.
