Fairytale loop hike above Srednji Vrh

As we have been driving in the direction of the mountains, the mushy morning gentle, caught within the forested slopes of the Karavanke mountains on the precise and the craggy peaks of the Julian Alps on the left, added to the vibrancy of a phenomenal autumn day. The distinction between the freshly coated snow-capped peaks and the explosion of colours within the forest decrease down was mesmerizing. Something from virgin white to shiny inexperienced, crimson, yellow and orange-brown, all set towards a transparent blue sky with an occasional streak of fog nonetheless lingering within the contemporary air. The type of perfection that may solely be seen proper after a very good lengthy downpour.

We have been heading to Srednji vrh, a small village at 950 m the place 28 inhabitants nonetheless lead a real countryside life. That might be our place to begin to achieve the unimaginable Karavanke mountains. It was my fifth time within the space up to now month, but my enthusiasm to see the ever altering autumn panorama by no means ceased to exist. Quite the opposite, I believe I discovered my new favourite nook within the Slovenian mountains the place I can at all times return and permit myself to get overwhelmed by its immense magnificence. 

Generally the forest opens as much as spectacular views of the mountains!

Just a few automobiles have been already parked in a small car parking zone at the start of the village, however not many individuals have been to be seen. Our objective was to achieve the highest of Mojstrovica, a relatively low however scenic 1,816-meter peak. From there we anticipated to search out essentially the most lovely views of Triglav, the best mountains of the Julian Alps, with the colourful autumnal forests proper beneath.

Through the previous month I had already explored a lot of the encompassing mountains. I had tackled something from a 20-km loop hike with an extended stroll alongside the ridge and 4 peaks on the way in which, then a motorbike journey again to the primary peak for a tremendous sundown, to a fast sundown hike to Mt.

Mt. Mojstrovica could be a brand new peak altogether once I visited the realm once more with a very good buddy after the second respectable snowfall within the week. We set out on an extended forest highway which was now frosted with virgin new snow. The upper we went, the extra wintry the character round us turned. Though simply three days earlier than, I used to be wandering about the identical lonely highway in boosting autumn colours and the snow adorned solely the higher 400 meters of the hike, the sudden low temperatures introduced the winter wonderland all the way in which down.

We left the snug important path at round 1,550 meters and continued our hike on a wild stretch of the snowy forest. With no indicators and no tracks within the snow, we continued going upwards following the pure traces of the forest and double checking with the monitor that somebody had added in an out of doors app. Quickly sufficient we left the route within the app, which didn’t appear to make a lot sense, no less than not within the snow, and as an alternative adopted our intuition up a really steep slope. 

It was a choose-your-own journey as we zig-zagged in the direction of what gave the impression to be the highest of the primary peak of our deliberate day hike. We reached the sunlit high of Tišlerica, 1,755 m, which surprisingly sufficient opened as much as lovely views of Mt. Kepa and a few of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps.

We dug snacks out of our packs, and basking within the heat of the mid November solar, loved each other’s firm. We checked out Mojstrovica, our desired peak of the day which was only a stone’s throw away, but it appeared unimaginable to achieve. There was no precise path on what appeared like a really steep slope down Tišlerica, and even when we in some way managed to discover a manner throughout, we might be confronted with a good steeper and extra uncovered slope to the scenic open high of Mojstrovica. But, there on the high of a totally arbitrary peak, which most likely even half of the locals don’t know of, we lounged within the perfection of an autumn day.

Finally we returned again down Tišlerica and even added an additional cute loop to the gorgeous Grajščica meadow. We determined we might be again there quickly and provides Mojstrovica one other probability. Maybe not a lot as a result of we didn’t discover magnificence on that hike, which we positive did, however extra so to complete what we’ve got began being the great previous cussed selves. Till subsequent time!
