Getting There

  • The hiking path starts at Hiša Ojstrica, and I simply walked out the door as I was staying there1. You should be able to park somewhere nearby.
  • Follow the road past the Plesnik homestead until you spot a red hiking sign sending you onto an ascending dirt trail that eventually turns into a footpath. Ignore the ridiculous timing advice – it takes an average hiker approximately 90 minutes to reach the alp.
  • You’ll reach the gravel road leading to the alp a few times. The hiking path is relatively well-marked, so you shouldn’t find it too hard to follow the waymarks. When in doubt, take the ascending fork.
  • When you reach the wooden fences, you’re almost there – it’s just a few minutes of an easy walk to get to the meadows.

  1. Not a bad choice if I say so myself ↩︎
