Access to starting point:
We drive to the border crossing Ljubelj, where before the tunnel we turn left towards Zelenica. Then we drive across a small bridge, after that on a parking lot we descend to the bottom south part of the parking lot, where we park.
Path description:
At the end of the parking lot, we notice signs for mountain pasture Preval, which points us on the path Bornova pot. At first, we diagonally ascend through smaller scree, and then the path passes into the forest, where with some shorter ascents and descents crosses steep slopes towards the left. Forest is soon replaced by steep rocky slopes, through which leads wide and on exposed spots also secured path. With nice views on mountains, which are rising above Podljubelj we get to Born's tunnel, where for easier and safer moving forward is highly recommended to use a lamp. Somewhere in the middle of the tunnel is situated a bigger window, from which is a scenic view on surroundings, and we carefully continue through the second part of the tunnel. When we leave the tunnel, in which are in rain also some large puddles, follows few minutes of exposed crossing, and then behind the bench "Marijino počivališče (Marija's resting place)" we get to larger scree.
In a gentle descent, we also cross scree, and then the path gradually starts ascending diagonally. At first, we are still ascending through the steep slopes, after that at first the slope flattens, and higher footpath widens into a cart track. Higher follows crossing of grazing fence, and then the path brings us out of the forest, and in few 10 strides of additional walking, we ascend on Preval, where there is a marked crossing.
Here few 10 strides to the left there is situated a shepherd hut, and we continue sharply right on an unmarked cart track which crosses slopes towards the right. Further, we walk on a cart track which is gently to moderately ascending, and in doing so it crosses few torrent gullies. Occasionally panoramic path higher brings us on the mountain pasture Potočnikova planina, where on the other side of the mountain pasture we notice a shepherd hut, to which we have only few 10 strides of easy walking.
Description and pictures refer to a condition in the year 2017 (January, April).
