Mangart

Mangart is the third highest mountain in Slovenia. The trail takes us through alpine pastures, scenic ridges, larch forests and old tunnels, carved into solid rock. From the saddle you can see Grossglockner in Austria in the north and the Adriatic sea in the south! There is a cozy mountain hut on the saddle below the peak – a great place to visit, have lunch or spend the night.

Level: moderate to the hut, difficult to the summit.
Duration: 2,5 hours to the hut, another 2 hours to the summit.

We sometimes split the hike into two days and we spend the night in the hut. This gives us enough time to climb to the summit, or explore the area in more detail – suitable for sunset-hunting photographers, botanist etc. The hut is also accessible by road.
