Description

Climbing Mt Triglav during the winter season is an incredible experience only reserved for a few. Come with me for a challenging 2-day ascent!

Mount Triglav (2864 m) is the highest peak in Slovenia and also the greatest symbol of the country. It lies inside Triglav National Park, at the heart of the beautiful Julian Alps.

This peak attracts many climbers during spring and summer. However, this time I invite you to join me on a more demanding winter ascent.

Our starting point will be Krma Valley. From there, a strenuous hike (between 5 and 7 hours) will lead us to Kredarica hut.

The hut will be our shelter for the night as well as the place that will provide us food and drink.

The following day, we'll start hiking right after breakfast. We'll first climb Mali Triglav (the smallest peak, also known as Little Triglav) and then approach the main summit. On the top we'll find the famous monument Aljaž Turret.

Finally, a quite difficult hike will bring us back to Krma Valley by the afternoon.

Are you ready for a winter adventure in the most popular peak in Slovenia? Please, contact me so we can start planning this trip together!

In case you're staying longer, you can't miss this 6-day winter mountaineering and alpine climbing course in the Julian Alps (it also includes climbing Triglav).

Itinerary

About the guide

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.

I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.

Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!

Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!
