This tour starts in the idyllic village of Tolminske Ravne, crosses the Kal (also Na Kalu) Mountain pasture, passes the stubby Mt. Tolminski Migovec and ascends to Mt. Tolminski Kuk. When you reach the top, you will notice a wonderful ridge to the west with a well-worn up-and-down trail. You can only avoid the ridge beneath Mt. Podrta gora. The ascent to this mountain is somewhat problematic for inexperienced mountaineers because it is routed along a very crumbly and rocky terrain. On the Škrbina notch, the trail descends a little down the northern side and embraces Mt. Vrh nad Škrbino. The beginning of the tour is easier because you can use iron clamps and the wire rope. On the top, you can enjoy in views from Lake Bohinj to the north all the way to the Adriatic Sea to the south.
From there, you only have to descend past the renowned Škrbinska plošča wall to the Razor Mountain pasture and further to Tolminske Ravne.
Safety informationThe tour is safe. The trail from the Škrbina notch to Mt. Vrh nad Škrbino is initially secured with wire ropes and somewhat exposed. We recommend vertiginous mountaineers to use the self-belay set.
This is a demanding and occasionally very demanding hiking trail. Use of hiking trails is at your own risk!
Tips and hintsPhysically well-prepared mountaineers can continue the tour from Mt. Vrh nad Škrbino along the ridge to Mt. Meja and Mt. Rušnati vrh and finish the tour on the Globoko Mountain pass. This prolongs the tour for approx. 2 - 3 h.
You can also descend from the Razor Mountain pasture to Tolminske Ravne along a longer trail. This will prolong your tour for approximately 30 min.
