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 village Radovna and the valleys Krma and Kot. Relatively steep road then runs past the TNP sign, behind which the road soon flattens and it brings us to a crossroad, where a macadam road into a valley Kot branches off to the right (straight Radovna and Krma). This occasionally a bit rough road, we then follow to the parking lot, where we also notice mountain signposts.
Path description:
From the starting point we continue on rough road, which after few minutes brings us to a turn off point (parking is not desirable here). Path ahead turns slightly to the left and crosses a torrent. On the other side of the torrent we are for quite some time gently ascending through the forest. After a half hour walk the path starts ascending. Next follows few ten strides of walking on the steep path, where iron spikes help us, which in dry aren't necessary. Steepness then decreases and path brings us to a well (in dry period dries up) at altitude 1340m. Here unmarked path on Macesnovec branches off to the left, and we continue on a marked path, which crosses a torrent. Next follows a short crossing of the steep part, where there's a steel cable for help (undemanding). After that path crosses a lane of dwarf pines and higher ascends on more rocky slopes, where in front of us we see Debeli kamen (large boulder, which we see on top of the slope). To Debeli kamen (thick stone) we ascend on gravel path surrounded with dwarf pines. Further, path ascends by a smaller scree upwards and a little higher turns more to the right, where brings us to a crossing. We continue left in direction of Staničev dom and Rjavina (right Vrbanove špice very demanding path). Steepness then decreases and follows few minutes of easy walking to the next crossing. We continue on the right path towards Staničev dom, which bypasses a sinkhole Pekel, which we see right below us (path left goes on Rjavina on climbing path). Further, we are gently ascending all the way to Staničev dom where a beautiful view opens up on Triglav.
From the hut we continue right in direction of Begunjski vrh, Visoka Vrbanova špica 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.
Kot - Staničev dom 4:00, Staničev dom - Cmir 2:00.
On the way: Dom Valentina Staniča (2332m), Rjavčeve glave (2365m)
