is not located in the main ridge of Kamnik Alps group
but in secondary ridge that comes from Grintovec
over the Kalski Greben

(1971m) is the highest peak of the small group on the south side of the Krvavec group. In this group is also the peak that the whole group gets the name. This mountain is Krvavec

is the highest point of the Krvavec skiing area and when you look from its summit to the nord yu will admire in the beautiful view on all the mountain in the main ridge of Kamnik Alps group
, Karavanke / Karawanken group

Instead of the steep slopes and dwarf pine are now there long grassy slopes and nice meadows that are very popular for hiking in snowless time because in Winter there is the skiing area. This area is in snowless season is very popular for family trips.
