The dragon's natural kingdom above Tržič

Spend an afternoon wandering around the Tržič area with an experienced mountain guide with a backpack full of Tržič stories.

The Tržič promotional story says that no path to Europe is as beautiful and steep as the one we will take to climb to the Ljubelj Pass. That's still true. We will start the tour in Ljubelj and in less than an hour we will arrive at Ljubelj Mountain Hut at an elevation of 1369 meters, where we will take some refreshment before continuing our tour. But we will not go Across Ljubelj to the Other Side as sung by the group Sestre: guided by Primož we will ramble along, with with one foot in Slovenia and the other in Austria, towards Korošica, one of the most remote and magical mountain pastures in the Karawanks. The lush mountain pastures are a true paradise for livestock in the summer, and we will enjoy the photogenic views amidst the rich alpine flora and enjoy traditional buckwheat porridge with sour milk. We will return along the foot of the extensive screes below the northwestern slope of Košuta, where, according to the legend of the creation of Tržič, the Tržič dragon hatched from a rooster's egg.
