Approach


You come to the plateau Pokljuka from the Bled or from the Bohinj valley. With car you drive to the barracks on the Rudno polje. From Bled is 22 kilometers. On the barracks is a signpost with inscription Triglav. We follow that road to the turning to the Triglav. Here we park a car.

Route Description



Visevnik seen from shelves in south slopes of Mali Draski vrh.

From here you follow the signposts for Triglav and Vodnikov dom (hut). You cross the west slopes of Visevnik and you soon ascend on the plateau Jezerce below the mountains: Veliki Draski vrh, Mali Draski vrh, Visevnik and Ablanca.

You ascend over marked route on Studorski preval, 1892m between Ablanca and Veliki Draski vrh. From here you can reach Ablanca on the left or Veliki Draski vrh over the nice unmarked route over south slopes. (see the mian page of Veliki Draski vrh).

You follow the marked route that first cross the SE slopes of Veliki Draski vrh and then come in the small plateau Na kontah and you come on the pass between Veliki Draski vrh and Mali Draski vrh.

Then comes the harder part of the crossing. You start crossing the south slopes of Mali Draski vrh. First you walk on the nice wide shelves that become more and more narrow. Then comes the harder place of the route that you must climb some hard parts in south face. Then you descend a little and come below the Srenjski preval.

Soon you come on the windy Srenjski preval and you se the SE slopes of Mali Draski vrh where the normal approach goes.

You start walking in its steep SE slopes over nice marked route. You must climb on some parts of the route but nothing too hard and soon you stand on the beautiful mountain.
