Access to starting point:
At first, we drive to Kranjska Gora, and then we continue driving towards Rateče. At the crossroad, where the road to Planica branches off to the left, and straight it continues towards Italy, we turn right and we drive to the center of Rateče, where we park at the appropriate place.
Path description:
From the center of Rateče we follow the signs for a footpath on Tromeja. At first, we walk on the road which leads through the settlement, and at the crossroads, we follow the signs for Tromeja. When at the information board of Rateče marked path leaves the road and continues right in the forest, we continue straight, on the road which further isn't marked anymore. Few strides ahead, at the smaller crossroad, we continue straight, after that the road after "last" house changes into a cart track, from which a nice view opens up on Rateče and Ciprnik. After crossing of lane of a forest we get to a grazing fence, behind it we continue right and on a grassy cart track we start ascending through the pasture. With nice views on Julian Alps, in few minutes we reach the road which leads from Rateče towards Tromeja, and we follow it to the left, but we walk there only few steps. After few steps, on the right we notice a door and passage through other grazing fence, which we cross, after that a little right, in the direction towards the forest we notice at first poorly, and further easier to follow cart track. On the cart track, we are ascending diagonally with nice views, and then we once again cross a grazing fence and we step into the forest. In the forest almost unnoticeably we stride across border, and then we join the marked path from Italy (in descriptions starting point Pri Jalnu / Fusine Laghi).
Further, we are ascending diagonally through the forest, and in doing so, we cross few torrents, through which passages aren't difficult. When higher we step on the road, we follow it to the right, and there we are few minutes moderately ascending. Immediately after the road flattens or goes on the other side, the road which leads on Kavalar / Monte Cavallar branches off to the left, and we continue straight, on the road which starts moderately descending. The road quickly brings us out of the forest, by the edge of a larger meadow, from where a view opens up on the nearby Kopa / Monte Coppa.
After a short descent at first road towards Marija Snežna / Madonna della Neve (on a sign Maria im Schnee) branches off to the left, and few meters ahead to the right road towards Kopa / Monte Coppa (1497 meters). In both cases we continue straight, and on the road we descend a little lower, to the next crossroad, by which stand trough with water and hiking signposts.
Here we continue slightly right and past bunker from the time of Rapallo border, we ascend little higher, to the spot, where signs for Peč (on a sign German caption Dreiländereck) point us to the right on a moderately steep cart track, on which in few minutes we ascend to bivouac without borders (caption on bivouac - Senza Confini Hütte).
Before bivouac we continue left (straight east path in Rateče...), where we quickly reach wider mule track. We continue the ascent on a marked path, which at first few times crosses the mentioned mule track, for a short time continues there, and then is steeply ascending left from a mule track. Higher for some time we return on a mule track, and then we follow the marked path, which brings us on the ridge west from the peak Peč. Here we continue right and in few steps of panoramic walking we ascend on Tromeja.
