Stol, the highest peak in the Karavanke

The Karavanke

The Karavanke await you with mountain pastures and the high peaks above them which offer superb views across Slovenia and Austrian Carinthia. Ascend them in summer or in winter.

To the north the Radovljica plains end on the southern slopes of the West Karavanke at Stol (2236m above sea-level), Vrtača (2181m above sea-level) and Begunjščica (2060m above sea-level). The mountain pastures beneath the peaks are easily accessible on foot. Beneath Begunjščica there are three mountain pastures: Polška planina, planina Planinca and planina Preval – which are still full of life and can be reached on marked trails from the Draga valley in Begunje.

 

During summer herds of cattle and sheep graze the pastures. These hiking trails are also accessible in winter.

 

Experienced hikers will enjoy conquering Mt. Stol, the highest peak in the Karavanke range. It can be reached from the Završnica valley near Žirovnica via the Valvasorjev dom mountain hut. The peak of Vrtača can be ascended from the Ljubelj pass, whilst Begunjščica, which some people also call 'the mountain with a hundred ravines' can be summited from the Draga valley via the Roblekov dom mountain hut or via the planina Preval mountain pasture.
