We drive to Blato meadow, the starting point of the trail.
Then we hike to a hut by the seven lakes over alpine meadows.
After having lunch on the hut we continue up the valley to Dolic hut, where we stay overnight.
We cover almost 20 kilometers distance on that day and deal with 1500 height meters. It takes us between 7-9 hours to reach Dolic hut from Blato meadow.
We hike for an hour through an old military trail for an hour. Then, we climb a via ferrata right to the summit of Triglav.
It takes around 3 hours to ascend Triglav from Dolic hut.
Descent goes to Planika hut, Vodnikov dom and across alpine meadows back to our car. As there are some longer ascents also on the way down it takes around 7 hours to reach our car from the top of the mountain.
That means that the day is around 10 hours long.
Half board (diner, breakfast and sleeping) on the mountain hut costs 40€, beer is 4€, 1,5 litre of water is 4,4€, 0,5 litre of water is 2,3€.
Usually guests spend between 50-60€ per person on the hut where we spend the night. Dishes that are offered for lunch on the huts on the way are ranging between 5-9€ for dish.
Equipment for climbing Mt Triglav:
-harness (I can provide this)
-helmet (I can provide this)
-via ferrata kit (I can provide this)
-warm clothing (fleece…)
-waterproof jacket and trousers (depending on the weather forecast)
-hand gloves(it can snow on the mountain in August also)
-sun glasses, hat and sun cream (high factor)
-shoes (high hiking boots recommended)
-medicine prescribed by your doctor
-energy bars, chocolates, other food for during the climb (the longest stretch without huts is 5 hours long. You can get warm food at the huts, so don’t exaggerate with snacks)
-alpine club membership card (if you are a member, you get some discount on sleeping, if not don’t worry about it)
I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.
I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.
If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.
Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!
I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.
If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.
