Julian Alps (Slovenia)
Click here for Julian Alps Photo Album
The Julian Alps' natural variety and beauty rival those of the
mountains in the far more heavily trekked neighboring Italy and
Switzerland - at lower cost. A trek in the Julian Alps will reward
you with breath-taking views of steep rock faces plunging into
forests and flower-strewn meadows; stunning panoramas of majestic
mountains from a lone trekkers' lodge improbably perched on a
limestone promontory (“How did it get there ?!”); lakes, rivers,
beautiful pastures and the ever-present limestone – nature's
sculpture gallery on display.
Our base camp is Bled, an as-yet-unspoiled lakeside village which is
overlooked by a castle on a cliff, encircled by a delightful
promenade, with overhead air-traffic provided by an extended family
of swans. From here we set off for a 3-day trek, return for Shabbat,
and then again foray into the mountains for a 2-day finale.
Like our Dolomite Traverse, this too is a back-packing trek, and the
two treks are comparable with regard to difficulty and altitude.
