|The north-west of Slovenia is dominated by dramatic
white limestone mountains, the Julian Alps. The highest
peak, Mount Triglav, stands at over 2800 metres; Triglav
National Park dominates and protects this whole area.
The panoramic views from the Vrsic Pass, a high mountain
road connecting the Trenta Valley from Bovec to Kranjska
Gora, are truly spectacular. It is a landscape of
soaring peaks, deep valleys, rivers of crystal clear
water, blankets of thick forest, and meadows filled with
wild flowers. This is an area of crashing waterfalls and
beautiful lakes: Lake Bled is the most famous, and
nearby is the relatively untouched Lake Bohinj.
Another Ramblers Worldwide Holidays trip, and graded at
C+ and D+, we had a good selection of challenging and
enjoyable walks. Staying in two centres, Bohinj and
Kranjska Gora, we had a wide selection of terrain and
difficulty to choose from. Our two leaders, Al & Jane
Sarjeant, were kept pretty busy but always had a smile
and words of encouragement when needed. Thank you for
another 'AL & Jane Adventure'!
