🇸🇮 Kovk above Col

Hiking in Slovenia » Vipava Valley » Kovk above Col

Kovk on Gora (hilly plateau north of Vipava Valley between Predmeja and Col) could mean one of three things:

  • The ridge on the eastern side of the plateau
  • The highest peak in that ridge (that’s the one we’re interested in)
  • A hamlet near the Col-Predmeja road.

The sunny slopes of Kovk will try to entice you whenever you drive on the road that traces the old Roman road from Hrušica toward Col. Take a break, hike from Col to Kovk (not more than 2 hours), or go for a day-long journey along the edge of Gora plateau.
