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:
At the end of the parking lot a macadam road by which there are signposts for Triglav branches off to the right. We go on this road which is slightly ascending and after ten minutes brings us to the ski slope. Further, we continue on the road from which soon a marked path towards Triglav branches off to the left, and we continue on the road which a little higher crosses the ski slope. On this part marked path on Viševnik branches off to the left upwards, on which we continue the ascent. The path ahead is ascending by a ski track upwards to the next ski lift. Here the path turns left upwards along the second ski lift and soon brings us to the top of the ski track. The path ahead on a slightly covered slope is ascending through nice small valley, which in the summer time is full of flowers. Next follows few minutes of steeper ascent to decaying hunting observatory. On this part we leave the path on Viševnik and go right on a poorly visible footpath, that is gently ascending on a meadow upwards. A little higher footpath becomes more noticeable and passes into dwarf pines. The path ahead crosses side ridge of Viševnik named Kačji rob and then passes into a high mountain terrain. Nice path with numerous karst phenomena then brings us to a crossing, where we continue on the left path in the direction of saddle Srenjski preval (right Blejska koča), which we reach after few minutes of additional walking.
From Srenjski preval we continue left (straight downwards Jezerce, right Studorski preval and Mali Draški vrh) on a path, which ascends diagonally over a relatively crumbly slope (dangerous for slipping). Higher, the path passes on a west side of the ridge and flattens a little. Next follows a diagonal ascent on the path which runs by the main ridge of Viševnik. Only few meters below the summit, the path crosses a shorter exposed ledge, after that without any bigger problems we step to the summit of Viševnik.
We can descend on normal path.
On the way: Srenjski preval (1959m)
Trip can be extended to: Mali Draški vrh ( 25 min)
