A GREAT EXPLORER OF SLOVENIA ONCE SAID, “TRIGLAV IS NOT A MOUNTAIN, IT IS A KINGDOM”. WITH AN ELEVATION OF 2,864 METRES (9,396 FT), Slovenia's Highest Mountain OFFERS CLIMBERS AN AMBITIOUS HIKE.
Resting at the Southeast of the Julian Alps, Triglav is regarded as the King of its range. It is surrounded by deep valleys which is why its height is really prominent from every direction look. Slovenians pay high regard for Triglav, not only is it featured as an emblem on the country flag, folks would say that every Slovenian has the obligation to conquer its peak at least once in a lifetime.
It was also the highest peak of Yugoslavia, way back before Slovenia gained independence in 1991. In the former country, Triglav used to be one of its symbols of “brotherhood and unity” along with the Vardar River (now in Republic of Macedonia).
Triglav also holds the title of being the most climbed peak of Slovenia.
In Slovenia, the marked trails come in three degrees of difficulty: 1) Lahka – the easiest path that comes without fixed steel ropes and pegs 2) Zahtevna – a more challenging path with a modestly secured trail 3) Zelo zahtevna – being the most demanding, it is a highly secured Feratta trail
