Stretching out southwest of Jalovec, Loška Stena is a group of mountains in the southern part of the Mangart and Jalovec Group. Orographically (downstream) and NE to SW, the main peaks of Loška Stena are Plešivec (2184 m), Bavh (2188 m), Bedinji Vrh (2196 m), Votli Vrh (2197m), Morež (2251 m), Briceljk (2346 m), Oltarji (2308 m), Vrh Rup (2245 m), Oblica (2246 m) and Vrh Krnice (2234 m). Maybe the most famous array of peaks in the Julian Alps, Loška stena is probably the widest, certainly the wildest, and one of the tallest walls in the range. The array of ten well aligned peaks tightly bound one to the next is surrounded by two valleys: the Koritnica Valley and the Bala Valley. The very steep and tall walls, mainly NW and N oriented, are in the Koritnica Valley, above the village of Log pod Mangartom. When it comes to climbing or hiking Loška Stena, the logistical center/trailhead is Log pod Mangartom (alt. 643 m), the main settlement in the Koritnica Valley. The Koritnica Valley is also where the name comes from, as well "Loška" as "Stena". "Loška" comes from Log, the name of the village, and "stena" means wall. In the Bala valley, Loška Stena shows its mainly SE oriented, milder side, though with hardly any (human) paths. The trailhead for the Bala valley is the Bavšica hamlet.
