Description

Mt Mangart (2678 m) is an important peak of the Julian Alps, standing on the border between Slovenia and Italy. Join for an incredible journey there!

Despite the ongoing debate over its name (some say it’s Mangart, others Mangrt), this is a fantastic mountain and very popular among climbers! Due to its easy access, it’s most visited during the summer months.

In fact, the Mangart road (Slovenia’s highest road) takes you up to 2000 m height, right below the rocky pyramid-shape summit of Mangart.

On this trip, we’ll ascent Mangart 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 30 minutes.

After that, we’ll be at the entrance of a via ferrata route. This is a more technical route that will demand 2 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 normal route and then go back to the car (3 hours).

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.

If you want to stay the night or more in Bovec, I recommend Apartments Skok.

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
