The Begunje Shepherd's Trail is an excellent choice for seasoned hikers who are seeking great hiking with added stunning views. You can crown your ascent by adding on a climb to the peak of Veliki vrh on Mt. Begunščica.
This circular trail begins in the Draga valley from where it leads to the Preval mountain pasture and onwards traversing panoramic slopes past the source of the Roža spring all the way to the Roblekov dom mountain hut. From there, it descends back to the valley via the Poljška planina and Planinca planina mountain pastures and ends back at the start in the Draga valley.
The peak of Mt. Begunščica can be reached via the steep path from the Preval mountain pasture or via the somewhat easier route from the Roblekov dom mountain hut. Refreshments are available at all the mountain pasture huts.
Start and end point: car park at the end of the Draga valley (46.3951N, 14.2183E)
Estimated time: 5-6 hours
Difficulty level: demanding hiking trail
Total height difference: 960m

As someone who works at home, when deciding to eat out, it’s as much about a change of scenery as it is about the food – though of course bad food with a good view doesn’t cut the mustard!
