Access to starting point:
From Kranjska Gora over mountain pass Vršič we drive towards Bovec or vice versa, but only to the mountain hut Koča na Gozdu, where we park on a parking lot in front of the mountain hut.
Path description:
From the mountain hut Koča na Gozdu we continue on the road Ruska cesta towards the mountain pass Vršič. After few hairpin turns the road flattens and it brings us to a larger meadow, by which there are numerous information boards. From here we follow the asphalt road only few 10 meters and then on the left side we notice the beginning of old road or mule track, which leads towards the mountain hut Poštarski dom na Vršiču.
The path at the beginning bypasses wooden cottage, and then in numerous zig-zags starts moderately ascending. Higher joins also the path from the mountain hut Erjavčeva koča, and we still continue on a wide mule track, which only a little further crosses a little steeper slope (in snow dangerous for an avalanche and slipping). Higher the forest gets thinner, and the path gradually passes on the southeastern slopes of Vršič (1737 meters). Here the path flattens even more and with increasingly beautiful views on surrounding mountains quickly brings us to the mountain hut Poštarski dom na Vršiču.
By the mountain hut Poštarski dom we notice signs for Vršič, which point us a little to the right on a well visible footpath, which gradually passes into a lane of dwarf pines. Here the path starts ascending steeper and after few minutes of ascent over a slope which is partly vegetated with dwarf pines brings us on 1737 meters high peak.
On the way: Poštarski dom na Vršiču mountain hut (1688m)
