Slovenia: Mangart – The Most Beautiful Road of the Julian Alps – VIDEO

Published: 15.9.2020
Slovenia's third highest mountain is definitely worth a visit. Just thanks to the fact that you can drive up to two thousand meters and you can enjoy unforgettable views even longer.

I drove on the Manhattan road for the first time two years ago, but unfortunately the landslide stopped me before the last section. But I will not forget the beautiful sunset from one of the smaller peaks above the road. That's why I knew that I wanted to go to Mangart again and ideally this time to reach the upper parking lot and climb the remaining 600 altitude meters to the top, which lies at 2679 meters above sea level.

Mangart

The road starts by turning off the main road between Italy and Slovenia through the Predel pass. It leads for a while along the Mangartský stream and then through a beautiful deciduous grove. After a while we arrive at a relatively newly built toll booth, where I pay 5 euros for entry.
From here, the road starts to climb sharply and soon narrows so that 2 cars have trouble avoiding it. After several steep serpentines and roughly carved unlit tunnels, the forest ends and wonderful views begin to open.

We stop at a small rest area in front of the last tunnel and just enjoy ourselves for a while. From here you can already see a large part of the dome-shaped massif of Mangart and part of the valley below us.
Unfortunately, disappointment comes in the parking lot near the local chalet. The last part of the road is still closed and concrete barriers have been added to the sign prohibiting entry. Unfortunately, we do not have enough time to get to the top from here, so we have to settle for 1992 meters of the top of the Mali litter.

Mangart

It is not visible from here all the way to Triglav, on the other hand we have the majestic Mangart directly above us and a deep slope below the Koritnice valley. On the left side, the rock walls of Jalovce and Pelc rise sharply from the valley, and in the distance in front of us other massifs along the border with Italy.

In addition to the view, I am also fascinated by the local nature. Even at the end of July, the grass-covered parts between the rocks burst with the colors of many species of flowering plants. And flowers, of course, attract beautiful butterflies.

Mangart

Due to the closed road, we finally change the plan of the last day in Slovenia a bit. On the way to the well-known Austrian camp, we are adding a stop for a great late lunch in the tip of Italy, which needs to be passed. And symbolically we say goodbye to the beautiful Julian Alps.

Published: 27.5.2017
Triglav National Park is one of the most popular spots in Slovenia. Its name comes after country's highest mountain which is located within the park. Tourists mostly take short trips or climb up the very mountain. It is strictly forbidden to take a one day trip up to Triglav's peak, staying over night is also forbidden (and only allowed in mountain cabins). The hike is very difficult. You can take it from different directions though.
