Access to starting point:
Between Most na Soči and Tolmin we notice signs for village Poljubinj, which point us on a side road, on which we soon get to the mentioned village. We continue driving on an ascending road which a little higher brings us in the village Ljubinj, where we continue left in the direction of the mountain hut Koča na planini Razor and mountain pasture Stador. Further, we are ascending on narrow, steep and the asphalt road which higher brings us to the spot, where the road towards the mountain hut Koča na planini Stador and airfield Kobala branches off sharply to the right. Here we continue straight, further to the mountain pasture Lom we drive without large changes in altitude. Behind the mountain pasture Lom we follow the signs for mountain hut Koča na planini Razor, and on the road which is mostly ascending diagonally towards the right, we drive to a marked parking lot, which is located before the mountain pasture Kuk. Further driving is forbidden.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on for public traffic closed road, on which we quickly get to mountain dairy on the mountain pasture Kuk (also Podkuk). Behind mountain dairy path starts moderately ascending towards the right, on left turn (zig zag), from the right also joins geological trail (also the path from Kneške Ravne).
We walk on the road only to the nearby crossing, where the path on Žabiški Kuk (also Žabijski Kuk) branches off to the right - path past Gradič (old military path).
We continue on the mentioned path (straight mountain hut Koča na planini Razor 30 minutes), which on a grassy slope starts vanishing. During the ascent, we get help from wooden poles, which are in the upper part colored in red color. When higher we step into the forest, more footpaths appears, and we continue on the one, by which there are red lines. For some time we in a diagonal ascent cross quite steep slopes towards the right, and then we step out of the forest and we get to steep grassy slopes. Next follows traversing in a gentle descent, where it is mainly in wet dangerous for slipping, and then the path turns left and passes into steep, mostly grassy gully surrounded by dwarf pines. Through indistinct gully the path which is still marked with red lines, is ascending straight upwards, so that the path is very steep. Higher, the footpath turns a little to the right, and the slope also flattens a little, and with nice views, we reach old mule track. For some time we are ascending on an old mule track, and then the path out of the dwarf pines passes over by the edge of the ridge, where we are ascending by the edge of steep slopes. Higher the ridge becomes a little more distinct, and in few additional minutes we get to miniature Aljaž turret, which is situated on Žabiški Kuk (1844 meters).
If we continue on the ridge further, we can in few minutes ascend to survey point 1881, which is the highest point of the ridge of Žabiški Kuk.
