Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road ahead towards Bled. In Bled at the traffic lights, the signs for Pokljuka point us to the right. Ahead we drive through Gorje and past the abandoned ski slope Zatrnik to Rudno polje on Pokljuka (large parking lot, barracks and shooting range).
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on the forest road (direction Triglav), on which in ten minutes of gentle ascent we come to a ski slope Viševnik. Here signs lead right (path on Triglav continues on the road) on a marked footpath which is further moderately ascending by the edge of the forest and by ski lift of the nearby ski slope. Higher, we again step on the road which we only cross, because signs for Viševnik point us through a grazing fence on easy to follow path which continues next to a ski lift. At the end of the ski lift path turns left into a lane of a forest and then joins the second, a little steeper ski lift. For some time we continue below the ski lift, and then the path passes on a ski track, on which we ascend to the upper part of the ski slope.
The path ahead passes into a smaller valley, through which by blooming flowers (applies to spring and summer months) we ascend to decaying hunting observatory.
Here or few 10 meters ahead (there are two turns) we continue right, on a poorly visible footpath, on which we continue the ascent. Higher, the footpath becomes more distinct and at first is turning a little towards the right, after that from a thin forest passes into a lane of dwarf pines and is gradually turning to the left. After a time we cross Kačji rob and the path brings us in high mountain terrain northeast from Viševnik. For a short time, we continue towards the west and a panoramic path quickly brings us in smaller grassy cirque, where it turns to the right. From a cirque path starts ascending steeper and in few minutes brings us to a marked crossing, where the path to a saddle Srenjski preval and Viševnik branches off to the left. We continue in the mentioned direction (right Lipanca) and we continue the ascent on the path which in good 10 minutes of a diagonal ascent, ascends on a saddle Srenjski preval. We ascend on the right side of the saddle to the signposts below Mali Draški vrh.
At the signposts we continue by following the signs for saddle Studorski preval. The path at first slightly descends, and then becomes demanding and by the steel cable crosses an exposed slopes. When safety catches ends, the path starts ascending a little and still crosses steep slopes towards the west. The path further isn't secured and that is why a little more caution is needed. When we come on the west side of Mali Draški vrh, a nice view opens up towards Triglav. Here slopes becomes less steep and a short descent follows to the saddle between Veliki and Mali Draški vrh.
The marked path here turns to the left, and we continue straight on a poorly beaten footpath. Soon also our path turns a little to the left and then it is ascending on the eastern slopes of Veliki Draški vrh. The path is in some parts poorly visible, but because of numerous cairns orientation isn't too difficult. Further for a short time the slope becomes a little steeper. And in the last part of the ascent, the path brings us on a grassy slope and follows the last ascent to the top, which we reach from the east side.
On the way: Srenjski preval (1959m)
