Getting There

  • Park next to the head of the hiking trails in Predmeja. There are also parking opportunities further up the road.
  • Follow the asphalt road toward Lokve for 2.5 kilometers, then turn left onto a narrower gravel road (signs for Čaven)
  • The ascent gradually becomes steeper, and when the gravel turns into an asphalt road, the going gets tough… fortunately not for long.
  • Stop at the top of the ascent and enjoy the fantastic view of the Vipava valley – it’s much better than the view you’ll have from the mountain hut, which is just a few hundred meters further down the road.
