Access to starting point:
We leave Gorenjska highway at exit Hrušica and follow the road ahead in direction of Kranjska Gora. Just a little before village Dovje the road which goes to Mojstrana (Vrata, Kot and Krma) branches off to the left. We follow the road ahead in direction of valley Vrata and we drive on that road to the large parking lot near Aljažev dom.
Path description:
From the parking lot we continue on a macadam road, which after 3 minutes of walking brings us to a crossing at Aljažev dom. We continue straight in direction of Triglav, Luknja and Pogačnikov dom (right Škrlatica) on a wide path, which goes behind the chapel (on the right side) and Aljažev dom (on the left side) into a lane of forest. Wide tourist - walking path past the winter bivouac brings us out of the forest, where in front of us we notice famous wedge (monument dedicated to fallen partisans mountaineers). We continue straight (left Tominšek route) on the path, which returns into the forest and brings us on the next crossing, where we continue straight (right Stenar, Pogačnikov dom). Path ahead is ascending by the torrent to the crossing, where we go left on Čez Prag route (straight Luknja and Plemenice) and after few strides of descent we cross a torrent. On the other side path quickly brings us to steep part of the path, where iron spikes help us. With a help of safety catches path quickly brings us level higher to less demanding part of the path. Next we are ascending with increasingly beautiful views on the path, which is occasionally surrounded by dwarf pines. Easy part of the path soon becomes more demanding again and there are steel cables for help, for safer walking. Next follows the hardest part of the path Čez Prag. With a help of stemples and a steel cable we ascend on 15 meters high almost vertical chimney. Difficulties then slowly vanish and from the left Tominšek route joins. Only few steps ahead by the path we notice a pleasant well where we can take a rest. Path ahead soon brings us on the next crossing, where we continue left in direction of Staničev dom (right Kredarica). Path ahead leads on karst terrain, full of cracks and abysses (carefully). Higher the path crosses shorter scree and after that it ascends on plateau terrain, where in front of us we already notice mountain hut Dom Valentina Staniča, to which we only have some 10 steps of easy walking.
From the hut we continue left in direction of Begunjski vrh, Visoke Vrbanove špice and Cmir. Quite gently sloping path after only few minutes of additional walking it brings us on a saddle Begunjski preval, where the path on Vrbanove špice branches off to the right. We continue straight on the path, which soon splits on two parts. We continue straight (left Begunjski vrh) on the path, which crosses northeastern slopes of Begunjski vrh (in early summer possible snow fields) and then it brings us on a smaller saddle behind the mentioned peak. Here a nice view opens up into a valley Vrata and mountains, which surround it.
After that path turns right and crosses a well secured smooth rocky plate. Further, we steeply ascend and path brings us on a very scenic ridge, which we follow towards northeast. Pleasant panoramic path then gets interrupted by a steep rocky ascent, on which on very well secured path we descend vertically downwards (10m). Path, which is then a little easier is for some time descending, after that it starts ascending towards Rjavčeve glave. After a few minute ascent we step on the mentioned peak, from which path starts descending on a steep grassy slope (dangerous for slipping). Path ahead in a moderate ascent passes over on a narrow and exposed ridge, from which it descends into a notch below main peak of Cmir. On the other side path turns a little to the left and starts ascending steeply on the upper slope of the mountain. After approximately 15 minutes of steep ascent we step to the summit of Cmir, from which a very nice view opens up.
