Andrej, an IFMGA certified mountain guide, wants to lead you on a 2 day ascent of the highest peak in Slovenia and the Julian Alps: Mount Triglav, from the beautiful Krma Valley.
Mount Triglav (2,864m) is a proud monument of Slovenia. This extraordinary peak is not only the highest mountain in the entire country, but also the highest mountain in the Julian Alps. It is also the namesake of the country’s only national park. Yet despite the mountain’s accolades, it is actually not a very difficult climb. Furthermore, at the top of the peak, there is a thrilling via ferrata that you will get to experience as well. And from the summit, you will get to enjoy some breathtaking views. There are many different ways to scale the mountain, and on this 2 day trip, we will do it from the Krma valley. This route is one of the easiest routes to take up to the summit.
Depending on weather conditions, we will either reach the summit of Mount Triglav in the afternoon of day 1, or in the morning of day 2. However, regardless of which day we choose, we will be spending the night in the Triglavski Dom located on Kredarica, which will take approximately 5 hours to reach from the Krma valley. From Kredarica, the climb to the summit will take approximately 2 hours. Finally, the descent back to the car at the Krma valley will take approximately 6 hours.
There is also the option to do the ascent and descent on a single day as well. However, that option is reserved for people in excellent physical condition. Weather conditions also play a large part in the single day excursion option as well.
If you would like to climb to the top of Mount Triglav, I would be happy to guide you on this exciting 2 day adventure. To join me, all you have to do is send me a request.
Are you looking for another climbing adventure on a much bigger peak? If so, I can also guide you to the top of Mount Lenin in Kyrgyzstan on this 21 day expedition.

Participants should bring basic mountaineering equipment that can be used for the via ferrata.

I was born in Kranj (Slovenia), and since I was a child the mountains have been my passion. I graduated in Sports at Ljubljana University and started an alpine career as a member of the Kranj Alpine Club.
In 1977, I climbed my first eight-thousander: it was a new route on Gasherbrum I. Some years later, a partner and I became the first Slovenians to ascend Mt Everest, also on a new route.
In fact, I’ve been at the top of Everest twice. The second time, I reached the summit with my wife Marija, and we were the first married couple achieving that.
Throughout my alpine career, I took part and even lead more than 20 expeditions in the Nepalese Himalayas. There, I climbed more than six peaks over eight thousand meters: two of them on new routes and three using pure alpine style. I also climbed in Patagonia, Pamir, USA, Caucasus and Scotland.
However, my major success was climbing a new route on Kangchenjunga, in alpine style and together with climber Marko Prezelj. After this, we won the prestigious mountaineering award Piolet d’Or.
I am a mountain guide since 1982 and I obtained my IFMGA license in 1997. I am also an instructor at the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association (SMGA).
I still live in Kranj with my wife and the youngest of our three children.

Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him, and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.
We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!
