At the top, you can soak up the dramatic views across the Julian and Carnian Alps, with the Hohe Tauern, the highest alpine range in Austria, forming a picturesque background. The trail then descends through the valley to the source of the mighty Sava River, the longest in Slovenia, back to Kranjska Gora.
