This is a great hiking place for us living in this area. On this day we have climbed Obruc from the village Podkilavac over Podplanina straight to the summit. As return route we decided to go over Pakleno north peak (1.331 mtrs) and Pakleno peak (1.340 mtrs) towards Hahlici hut, from where we descended to Podkilavac.
Great autumn afternoon in the area Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2008
We were late again, starting the hike around 11:30 a.m., also taking no sleeping bags with us (next day had to be early at home, so we jumped in the morning only on Risnjak). Through Mudna dol we climbed on the upper area - great scenery in the canyon and even more nice in the upper grassy valleys, with those big beech trees in autumn colours. I saw nothing like those before. Then hiked to Hahlici and in the late afternoon only succeeded to do the Pakleno circle (I think it was a better choice than the summit of Obruč). Great scenery again. In the sunset time then we had a nice, colourful descent to Podkilavac. Then we drove through forrests to below Risnjak, where we spent night in the car.
