Kamnik Alps

Kamnik alps

 

The end of the Kamniška Bistrica Valley is a great starting point for many hiking routes to the Kamnik Alps. The highes summit is called Grintovec, and is 2558m high. In the summer months you will meet a lot of hikers in the Kamnik Alps, choosing from shorter or longer walks, or more or less demanding ones. We recomend you to gather infomation on which route to choose to avoid unpleasant experiences.

Another interesting event:
The highes summit Grintovec is once a year visited by the best mountain runners from all around the world. This year, the Mountain Run Cup of Slovenia will take place on the 26. June, where some of the fastest runners reach the top in just over an hour.

Our suggestion:

Kamniško Sedlo

Starting point: guest house Dom v Kamniški Bistrici (601 m)
Destination: mountain lodge Kamniška koča na Kamniškem sedlu (1864m)
Time: 3 h 45 min
Difficulty: easy marked route

Altitude difference: 1263 m

Description: From the parking place in front of the guest house in Kamniška Bistrica you continue your walk first along a road, which leads you into the woods after a short ascent. After a couple of minutes, the signs for Kamniško sedlo direct you to a steep footpath, which leads you to an interesting crossing under the overhanging rocks. An steep path  brings you to the lower station of a ropeway conveyor, where you reach the road. You continue left and after a few steps take a sharp turn to the right. A steep path brings you higher to a curt rut which you follow for a couple of meters to the right, and then the blazes direct you left, where after a inicial steep ascent the slope decreses. At first you cross the steep slopes, where a route from a higher starting point (Jermanca) joins yours. A well marked and quite steep path leads you through the woods to a nice spring (which runs dry in the low rainfall season). From the spring after a short ascent you reach a well-know  resting spot Pri Pastirjih, with a shelter lodge.

 

 

Follow the marked trail from the woods onto a wide panoramic pasture. Afterwards the path leads into a belt of mountain pine where its becomes steeper. After an hour walk, the path, leading across a sunny slope with a nice view, reaches the mountain lodge Koča na Kamniškem sedlu.
