The westernmost part of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps
Above the hilly Ljubljana Basin, between Tržič and Begunje na Gorenjskem, rises the panoramic 1634-metre-high mountain of Dobrča. You can choose from among a number of marked paths to reach the summit, most of them starting from the foothill villages of Brezje pri Tržiču, Hudi Graben or Srednja Vas.

All the hard work of the climb is forgotten the moment you arrive at the hut, where you will first want to take in the views all around. They are truly spectacular in virtually all directions. The view to the north is obscured by the slopes of Dobrča, but to the east you can see Kriška Gora, Storžič and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, to the southeast the Sava Hills, the Ljubljana Basin, and the mountain ranges of Slovenia's interior, including Snežnik. You can also see the Polhov Gradec and Škofja Loka range, the plateaus of Jelovica and Pokljuka, and the Julian Alps with Triglav.
If you are still warmed up you can climb to the top of Dobrča in about half an hour, or take a longer route over rugged terrain to the mountain pasture of Preval below Begunjščica.
