Julische Alpen

Description

Julische Alpen

The Julian Alps are located in the triangle of Austria, Italy and Slovenia. Officially, Austria has no share in these Alps, while the main and highest - and most spectacular - part of them is situated in Slovenia: the Triglav Mountains.

The Julian Alps are part of the Southern Limestone Alps. Like the Northern Limestone Alps, these mountains are characterized by steep, sharp, white limestone massifs. They reach their highest point in the Triglav (2.864 m). This mountain is easy to climb for the sure-footed (rope recommended). Connections between huts sometimes are stunning demonstrations of trail hewing, making forbidding rock faces accessible. Not recommended for those suffering from vertigo.

The area has a pronounced sweet side too: beautiful forests and lakes, and also picturesque farmland on the lower plains. This is making for some very enjoyable hikes in view of the white teethed crests.
