Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road towards Bled and forward towards Bohinjska Bistrica. We continue driving towards the lake Bohinj (Ribčev laz), where we come to a crossroad, where we continue straight on the left (south) side of the lake in the direction of Ukanc and waterfall Savica. This more and more narrow road, we then follow to a large parking lot at the mountain hut Savica. The parking lot is payable.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a wide path, which ascends by the river Savica (direction Komna and waterfall Savica). After two minutes of easy walking we come to a small cottage (a stand), where the path towards the waterfall branches off to the right, and we continue straight in the direction of the mountain hut Dom na Komni. The path ahead leads us on an old military mule track and is ascending in numerous hairpin turns, all the time through the forest. When we walk the 48 hairpin turns the path brings us into a small indistinct valley between Dobračeva glava and Pleša. This small valley is called Pekel. Ascent ahead runs on a less steep slope, where on the right side we can notice a cave, which they made during the war. Ten minutes before the mountain hut Dom na Komni we come to a crossing, where we go left (right lake Črno jezero). And only few steps ahead we come to the next crossing, where the path branches off to the right, which leads towards the mountain hut Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih. We continue left and a little steeper path we follow all the way to the mountain hut Dom na Komni.
At the mountain hut, we go on the left path which leads us on Tolminski Kuk and Vogel. Already after few ten strides path brings us to the next crossing, where the path on Vogel branches off to the left, and we continue on the right path towards the mountain pasture Govnjač, which we reach in good 15 minutes of a light ascent.
On the mountain pasture, we carefully follow the signs for Kuk and Mahavšček. Because here is quite a lot of footpaths so we can already by a small carelessness go astray.
The path ahead is ascending on a plateau of Spodnja Komna and after a short ascent, it brings us to the next crossing, where we leave the marked path which leads on Mahavšček and we continue left on an unmarked footpath. We continue on a slightly ascending and in parts quite an overgrown path, which a little higher brings us below northern foot of Tolminski Kuk. Here the path turns a little to the right and in a moderate ascent ascends to a saddle Planja, where we step on a marked path.
We continue left on the path which starts ascending steeply on northwestern slope of Tolminski Kuk. This part is because of substantial steepness also very exposed to falling stones. And very steep path after 30 minutes of walking from the saddle Planja brings us on a panoramic peak.
The starting point - Komna 2:30, Komna - Tolminski Kuk 3:15.
On the way: Dom na Komni mountain hut (1520m), Planina Govnjač (1580m), Planja (1874m)
