Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Ljubelj and follow the road ahead towards the border crossing. When we leave the last tunnel (we recognize it by that, that after the tunnel on the left side of the road there is scree) we will in the first sharp left turn notice a road house and next to it a macadam road. Here we park on a smaller parking lot or we drive on a bad road further to the next parking lot, which is situated a little higher.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a bad forest road and we follow it ahead. The road higher crosses a torrent, after that slightly ascends and then brings us to the spot, where it ends. Ahead we cross the bridge and we continue on a cart track which is moderately ascending on a partly overgrown scree. Cart track makes few sharp turns and brings us from northern slopes of Košuta on the southern slopes of Košutica.
Further, we are mostly ascending through the forest, which brings us on a larger clearing. Here cart the track goes sharply left and is ascending towards the mountain pasture Korošica. A little before the mountain pasture we cross a grazing fence, where a beautiful view opens up. From the meadow we go slightly right below the cottage, which we see above us. The path then turns left and in few steps of ascent brings us to the cottage on the mountain pasture Korošica.
From the cottage, we continue towards the north in the direction of Košutica (right saddle Hajnževo sedlo). The path soon turns to the left and crosses the western slopes of Košutica. A relatively gently sloping path soon brings us on the border ridge, where from the left joins the path from the mountain hut Koča na Ljubelju.
Here we go right and we continue the ascent on a more and more panoramic ridge. After that, the path becomes steep, and the forest is becoming thinner and gradually entirely vanishes. Further, we are ascending on a panoramic ridge, which is quite wide so that there is no significant danger. The path is then ascending through dwarf pines and it brings us on the Austrian side. Here we ascend through a short, but quite steep gully back on the ridge. Here we step on a steep with grass vegetated slopes on the Slovenian side (in wet dangerous for slipping). After this ascent over grass we come on an upper little exposed ridge which we then follow to the peak.
The starting point - Korošica 1:35, Korošica - Košutica 1:15.
On the way: Planina Korošica (1554m)
