Hike up to Nanos-Plesa, giving a promising view from Triglav till the Gulf of Trieste

This tour starts at the parking in Razdrto (GPS: 45.759211, 14.061722; use Highway-Exit Razdrto). The tour first crosses the highway bridge, turns left into the gravel road. After a few meters, the trail starts on the right hand side. The trail first leads easygoing through a forest but after the crossing becomes relatively steep. It is advised to turn right at the crossing and follow the steep path upwards since it allows promising views on the landscape. At the peak, bypassing the antennas and after a well-deserved break at the Vojkova koca hut, follow the trail at the edge towards the Sv. Hieronim chapel, turn left before and follow the trail downwards back to the parking.
