This stage crosses the Lower Bohinj mountains of the Julian Alps, whose ridges are visible ahead. First go down the rather steep slope through the forest, then climb up the ridge again. The Kobla ski slopes can be seen descending into the valley below. Črna prst is famous for its varied Alpine flora and as a vantage point. It lies within the bounds of Triglav National Park.

    Wir sind zurück auf der ViaAlpina. :-) Und wir wollen noch mal Werbung für Rudi (Mountain Lodge Petrovo Brdo) machen. Dort zu übernachten oder eine Pause einzulegen, gehört einfach zur ViaAlpina dazu. Selten so eine gute Gastfreundschaft erlebt.

    Die Hütte Črna prst ist noch sehr ursprünglich (z.B. Stehklo). Beachten sollte man, dass es kein Trinkwasser gibt, nur Flaschen zum Kaufen - so kann man sich draußen auch die Zähne putzen. Außerdem darf man eigentlich erst um 18 Uhr Richtung Zimmer. Das Pärchen, das die Hütte betreibt, ist aber super nett und sehr bemüht. Zudem bietet sich eine Nacht dort echt an, weil die folgende Etappe wirklich nich leicht ist (sehr ausgesetzte Kletter-Einlagen).

    Une journée quasi repos pour moi, étant parti de Petrovo Brdo (voir étape précédente).
    Au refuge, pas de douche, mais on peut se laver dehors. Comme à beaucoup de refuges en Slovénie, pas d'eau potable, il faut la commander en bouteilles: en effet le terrain karstique laisse s'infiltrer l'eau, et pas de torrent, il faut donc prendre ses précautions.

    June 15, 2017 A day almost rest for me, having left Petrovo Brdo (see previous step). At the shelter, no shower, but you can wash outside. As in many refuges in Slovenia, no drinking water, it must be ordered in bottles: in fact the karst ground lets infiltrate the water, and no torrent, so take precautions.

    Since the automated translation seems to struggle with petersi’s comment, to reassure you here is what he wrote: „The bear which caused some damage years ago in the area has NOT been around for more than two years now.” Happy hiking!

    A la cabane de chasse, faire attention : l'itinéraire suit un sentier NO en partie caché par les frondaisons, alors qu'un large chemin O balisé pareil s'ouvre devant nous. Très bon accueil au refuge Tcherna Prst.

    At the hunting lodge, be careful: the route follows a trail NO partly hidden by the foliage, while a wide path marked like O opens before us. Very welcome at the shelter Tcherna Pres.

    In Petrovo Brdo, the owner -Radko, will not allow you just to pass his guest-house. He will come after you. Try his excellent Turkish Coffee. It comes together with Radko's own home brewn distillery, on the house: don't refuse! A small glass of this will rocket you up all the way to the Crna Prst! His guest-house also has two rooms. Fill up your water bottle here.

    Radko is very enthusiastic to give you all sorts of good advice, like what to do if a brown bear crosses your track! (In short: don't run away -it will come after you, but make yourself big to scare it off). He knows, because the bear is often seen walking through the village: it killed three of his cows earlier this year!

    In Podbrdo befindet sich ein Supermarkt (Mercator), man kann gleich beim ersten Wegweiser (von Crna Prst kommend) Richtung Podbrdo absteigen (anstatt Richtung Baca) und in Podbrdo dann wieder Richtung Porezen aufsteigen!
