He who climbs the highest mountains,
laughs at all tragedies, real or imagined.
Mountaineering and alpinism are a very special experience in the Soča Valley. The walls in the Triglav National Park are a wonderful scenery for everyone, but we recommend only experienced people to face them properly.
In the Soča valley, the northern littoral walls invite you. One of these that leaves the biggest impression is certainly the Loška wall, which stretches 7 km wide and represents one of the largest ridges in the Slovenian mountains.
Of course, Bovec, Kobarid and Tolmin, surrounded by the peaks of the Julian Alps, offer an excellent starting point for mountaineering adventures of varying difficulty.
Mangart (2678 m) is the peak of the Julian Alps, located on the border between Italy and Slovenia. Are you ready for an adventure on one of the most beautiful Slovenian mountains?
Due to its easy access, the peak is very popular among climbers, especially in the summer months. In fact, a large part of the route can be done by car along the Mangartska road (the highest alpine road in Slovenia), which climbs to an altitude of 2000 m.
The road ends at Mangartské sedlo. From there, it takes about 45 minutes to enter Slovenska, a very demanding protected route.
Just climbing to the top takes 2 to 3 hours. Although the climb is quite technical, it is still suitable for beginners. Finally, we will go down the Italian route back to the starting point.
I am Igor Kremser, a mountain guide with an international IFMGA license, born in 1987. Throughout my mountaineering career, I have participated in expeditions to the Andes, Himalayas and China. We were also nominated for a golden ice ax with our fellow climbers for the climb to the Chinese peak of Xulian Feng.
People go to the highlands for a variety of reasons. Some want to test themselves and overcome the challenge offered by a high mountain or a difficult climb. Others want to enjoy the stunning beauty and natural wonders that the highlands have to offer. Still others want to get away from everyday life and indulge in the silence and peace offered by unspoilt nature.
In addition, visiting the highlands can also help improve physical and mental health. Walking in the highlands is a very demanding physical activity that strengthens the heart, muscles and bones. At the same time, it also encourages thinking and relaxation, which has a positive effect on mental health.
View towards Mangart
The Soča Valley is the land of the highest and most powerful peaks of the Julian Alps. Marked mountain trails climb from the valley into wild mountain corners, including the trail to Triglav (2,864 m), the highest Slovenian peak.
The high mountain world of the Julian Alps, the unspoilt nature of the Triglav National Park and the refreshing proximity of the Soča River make the Soča Valley one of the most beautiful hiking destinations.
