Description

Mt Mangart (2678 m) is an important peak of the Julian Alps, standing on the border between Slovenia and Italy. Join me on an incredible journey to this amazing place!

Mangart is a fantastic mountain and very popular among climbers! Due to its easy access, it’s most visited during the summer months. The Mangart road (Slovenia’s highest road) takes you up to an altitude of 2000 m, right below the rocky pyramid-shaped summit of Mangart.

On this trip, we’ll climb this amazing peak through the Italian side. We’ll drive to the Mangart saddle and then descent down to the path that leads to Laghi di Fusine. The descent lasts 45 minutes.

After that, we’ll be at the entrance of a via ferrata route. This is a more technical route that will demand 2 – 3 hours of climbing.

Once we finish the via ferrata, we can descend back to the car (30 minutes) or reach the summit of Mt Mangart by the Slovenian route and then go back to the car (3 hours). If you are interested in this option, we can include it in the itinerary at an added cost of 50 EUR.

I recommend this trip for those who want to experience more technical via ferratas.

Please, let me know if you’d like to join this trip in the Julian Alps. It will be a challenging adventure!

You can also climb Mt Mangart by taking the via ferrata route on the Slovenian side.

About the guide

I am an aspirant IFMGA mountain guide, born in 1987, from Vuhred, now living in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I have been discovering mountains from an early age. I started climbing at the age of 15 and now it has become a way of life.

During my active years as an alpinist, I have been on four expeditions to the Andes, Himalaya and China and I was nominated for the Piolet d’or for the ascent to Xulian Feng in China.

I like all types of alpine activities such as alpine climbing, sport climbing, ski touring, etc. Overall I like to spend my time in the mountains. That is why I decided I not only want to climb for myself, but to guide other people, so they can experience what I have until now.
My mission as a mountain guide is to provide you the safest way to discover mountains, so that you can explore the vertical world in a different way. I will guide you to more or less populated mountain trails and climbing routes.

This was a great trip. It was challenging enough to be interesting but easy enough for all the family. The option of staying in the hut after lunch for those not wanting to do the summit worked well. Igor was great. thanks

The whole experience from top to bottom was amazing. Mitja and Igor were super accommodating, even trusting my friend and I to go up for a sunrise hike. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip, would highly recommend!

Igor is very attentive guide and he was with me at every step. He made pictures with me along the way and he pushed me to achieve my goal. Thanks! All the entire process to booking was very easy from choosing the trip to descending back in town in safety and they are amazing team, because I have a tone of questions and they have a tone of patience. Thanks again, guys! I will return for via ferrata on Triglav.

The experience truly was 5*, the scenery of 7 lakes valleys was just breathtaking. Igor was amazing guide, he really took care of us and explained about the local culture and nature while drinking few beers at the hut & waiting the sunset:)  Especially the "fast route down", via ferrata and meeting the mountain goat was very memorable! I have and i will continue recommend you guys and Igor for my friends;) All the best to you guys and maybe next time we will tackle another mountain together:) Love and Sunshine from Finland.

The scenery was spectacular. Igor was very patient and helpful. My son was fast but I was slow and Igor kept pace with me. I highly recommend the guide and walk.
