Route description

The starting point (1100 m) is the turn-off for Mangrt, from where the asphalt road ascends evenly past the Mangrt Pasture (1307 m), passes through three tunnels, and continues up to the site where the road branches off for the mountain lodge at the Mangrt Saddle (1908 m). The tour continues to the end of the asphalt road and ends at a circular macadam road, which brings one to the highest point: the Mangt Saddle (2040 m). Here one can enjoy a beautiful view over the western part of the Julian Alps. Return is made via the same route.

Points of interest

Alternatively, the end of this route (at its highest point) can be used as a starting point for a mountaineering experience, namely climbing Mt. Mangrt (2678 m), or a paragliding adventure that takes one to the Koritnica Valley.
