Getting Slovenian

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Finding itself at slightly over 2,800 metres, the altitude of Mount Triglav is maybe not considered very highly, however that is only a number. Getting from the mountain hut to Mount Triglav is challenging, at most times more than higher summits. Like a book, it's not the number of pages that makes it a classic, it's the plot and characters. And the view from the summit is far reaching and rewarding.

What did you think of your group leader?

The group leader led by example and was available for us. It was easy to realise how much he loves the mountains and the National Park.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Being in the mountains is not just about walking through the day from one hut to another. It's about a different way of life for a week or so. At times in the mountain huts, you realise how much you take for granted the day-to-day necessities such as water and a single bed. Showers are at a premium and bottled water in the huts is not cheap.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

While getting to Mount Triglav feels like the main scope of the trip, the journey in itself is also a pleasure. At times you;re mesmerised by the barren rocks in the mountains, where rocks dominate at other times, you're smitten by the green surroundings of the valleys.
