The Triglavska Bistrica Trail

Even if you are not planning of conquering any of the peaks which overlook this Alpine valley as guards, the Vrata Valley itself is worth seeing. Take time for a three-hour walk and head along an excellently marked Triglavska Bistrica Trail to the gable of the valley under the Triglav northern wall. All the way from Ros, the paths and trails continue along the Triglavska Bistrica stream, which springs up in the Vrata Valley and is 10 kilometres long. Follow the typical information boards of the Triglav National Park.

Water of the Triglavska Bistrica stream is cold and refreshing. Sit on one of the white stones next to it, take off your shoes and put your tired feet in it, and let your eyes travel through the most beautiful rock faces of the Julian Alps.

Planica – a trail through the valley

Planica is a long, typical glacial valley in the northern part of the Slovenian Julian Alps.

Near Rateče it branches off from the Upper Sava Valley. To the west it is limited by the Ponc ridge and to the east the Mojstrovka and Cipernik mountains rise above it. The upper part of Planica continues in Tamar and Zelje, which is one of the most beautiful gables in the Slovenian Alps, at the end of which rises Mt. Jalovec in its impressive form. During the Pleistocene period, a glacier moved slowly down the slopes of Jalovec and transformed the upper and middle part of the valley. A moraine, which is an accumulation of glacial debris, covers the central ground of the valley.

The characteristics of this landscape are presented along the Trail through the valley.
