Above the Bohinjsko sedlo (road pass), 1217 m, which separates the massif of Ratitovec from the rest of South Bohinj Range, the main ridge makes a nice arc around the meadow of Soriška planina. This broad grassy valley is opened towards the north, but due to its gentle slopes it is still pleasant and sunny. But in winter, its north oriented slopes still keep snow long enough, so on the slopes of Lajnar, 1549 m, we have a chair lift and ski terrains. Otherwise just all the summits around Soriška planina are nice ski touring goals and also very fine panoramic points.
The southern slopes of these mountains however steeply lower down towards the Petrovo brdo road pass and into the Baška grapa (valley). They are mostly grassy indeed, but also intermitted with some rock crags. An interesting feature of this area are also many well preserved remains of fortifications, which Italy built there between the World War I and World War II, when posessing the territory. The military mountain paths do help us today to reach the summits, in the ex barrack local shepherds made their shelter. All bunkers along the ridge lines are of course today abandoned, but if we come with a battery, many of them can be seen also from within.
On the very east of our group of six summits, steeply above the beautiful village of Sorica, rises the Dravh, 1547 m. It is mostly ascended from the Soriška planina, but a nice, marked path reaches it also from the southeast, from above Sorica. From Dravh the main ridge lowers towards the southwest for less than 100 m and then from the saddle rises again on the almost equally high summit of Lajnar, 1549 m. Just below it, there's the upper station of ski lift. On the summit of Lajnar, the ridge turns towards the west-northwest and descends on another saddle, 1488 m high.
In continuation, the ridge of Slatnik, 1597 m, becomes more steep, so the ex military path crosses its southern slopes. Further to the northwest, there's a small plateau near the main ridge. There, we shall find most of fortifications, including the big barrack. Another Slatnik, 1609 m, rises just above the plateau.
From the plateau, the main South Bohinj Range continues lowering towards the west, but towards the north, a rounded side ridge deters as well. It soon culminates on the most important summit of the area, Možic, 1603 m. The elevations further on are all lower and forrested.
Finally, west of the Možic, the last fine summit of our group rises out of the woods. That's Šavnik, 1576 m. It is rarely visited, but also with a fine panorama, especially over the Bohinj valley.
On the Soriška planina, which is the most suitable trailhead for these summits, we can drive either from the valley of Bohinj (on the northwest) or from Selška dolina (valley, on the southeast). On the latter approach, it's certainly worth sightseeing a bit two wonderful villages: Sorica and Danje. In Sorica, Ivan Grohar, the famous Slovenian painter-impressionist was born. The village is stretched alon a nice, grassy ridge. The two villages od Danje are situated a bit eastwards of Sorica, already on the slopes of Ratitovec. Especially Spodnje Danje with the cute St. Mark church is picturesque. When listing picturesque villages, also on the Bohinj side the village of Nemški rovt can offer you a few nice scenes.
1. Soriška planina round tour. From the parking place, or from Litostrojska koča (hut), we start gently ascending towards the south. Then we keep left of the ski terrains. The summit of Dravh can be ascended anywhere. It offers nice views especially on the massif of Ratitovec and hamlets on its southern terrace. In continuation we keep to the main ridge - on the summit of Lajnar, perhaps also on the first summit of Slatnik (1597) and then on the higher Slatnik (1609 m). All these summits and saddles among them are easily reached also directly from Soriška planina. To the big barrack also a good marked path comes.
From Možic, we can either return, or continue peakbagging - descending westwards on a mountain meadow and from there ascending from the southeastern side Šavnik, the last summit. From there we easily return to Soriška planina by the broad valley, which starts descending northwards from the saddle between Možic and Šavnik. After crossing another meadow, we soon hit the mountain road and return by it.
All parts of the crossing are easy (T2), only the ridge of first Slatnik is more steep and requires additional attention (T3). Some 3-4 hours for the whole round tour.
3. The approaches from Petrovo Brdo, 804 m, and from Bača pri Podbrdu, 781 m. These are the marked paths from the traiheads, which are lying quite low, on the southern side. The eastern one reaches the hut in the woods south of Slatnik and then Lajnar, the western one goes directly up on the Vrh Bače saddle. That saddle, 1273 m, was once very important, because the trade route from the southern valleys into Bohinj was crossing it.
The summits around Soriška planina can be reached any time of season. Only in really deep snow consider the risk of avalanches.
