Hello to all the Forum members.

As promised before, did I want to tell you a little about the Trek in Slovenia.


At 22.10.12 this afternoon landed in Israel after having walked the path of Slovenia's Alpine

About the trail
The trail is actually one continuous trail that begins in the North of the country in a beautiful small town called Maribor close to the border with Austria, and continues East along the border with Austria on a Ridge called the Karavanke border with Italy until then descends southward and ends at the beach in the Adriatic Sea in a small village called Ankaran right next to the border with Italy.

The trail crosses all of Slovenia and mountain ranges including the Julian Alps.

For himself has a few names. the official name in English is
Slovenia High level route
But the locals call him a Transverzala (the crossing)
More names you can hear normally planinsa pot-San for the Slovenian mountain, SPT COMMAND, ROUTE1.

The history of the trail

It all began in the mind of Professor Ivan somliek, who was a fan and travel in the region. In 1950 he came up with the idea to connect existing trails for a long one that crosses all the ridges. He offered his idea to the Alpine Association of Slovenia Slovenia was thus became the first country in which inaugurated the trail crosses the country and consists of existing trails.
Along the trail- approximately 550 km
Length in days- friendly's guide divides the trek to 50 days.



Who is suitable for.
The path is very easy, and parts (see the parts) are comfortable and shady paths often cross the forests and hills and can adapt to people at all levels and for families with children.
The mountainous parts of the trail include walking on trails, skrmbling, aliuot and steep, sometimes using iron cables and pegs and require experience in walking and/or climbing mountains + via privatization and are not afraid of heights and sections. Unlike other trails in Europe cannot circumvent the difficult or dangerous for moderate and low because walking in the area of hilly and sometimes there is only 1 way to cross.
However you may download your level of difficulty or danger of the path of the waiver he peaks through provided the Summit is detuour.


That's why such a variety in terms of degree of difficulty I added a series of difficulty for the breakdown of each section.
The trail passes several large passim and peaks of many mountains, including the highest mountain in Slovenia but there is no danger of altitude sickness unless you feel. The track is 2864 teriglab Summit
A friendly guide is also a good safety equipment appropriate for the helmet, Alpine-via privatization.
The vast majority of the people I saw in the Alpine sections use helmet + via privatization. I haven't used because frankly I don't know what this is about at all before I saw something like this for the first time, and I don't think I was using hindsight because of considerations.
Most people mountains in the mountainous areas, are there only for a day or two where they climb to the summits, or do some hiking via privatization and go home.  I had to carry safety equipment in the bag for two months.

The type for
Here, too, is reflected in diversity have little State.
The lower parts of the forest and green with running streams and picturesque villages. The high alpine and filled skyrockets peaks, mountainous terrain and very dry because of the soft limestone soil that allows rapid infiltration of precipitation. In the Slovenian Alps are Lakes and rivers.

Recommended season
The lower parts are accessible as early as late April, thaw in the Alpine end of June July and you can walk to the end of October. I got off the trail in 4 October and in Slovenia until mid-October and still not enough snow in the mountains to make walking impossible.

Climate
In Slovenia there are three climatic zones.
-Northern and Alpine. Nice with summer storms like any mountain area, low humidity, very cold winters with lots of snow and rainfall.
-Continental East and Southeast of the country, summer is hot, medium humidity, winter average European with snow.
Western Mediterranean and the coast of the country. Summer is very hot and humid in the summer and in the spring, with a cozy winter snow.
Most of the trail passes through Alpine climate zone and the parts of idriaha and so on (see the distribution to sections) coming into the Mediterranean area.
The tmprotora in season (July-August) ranges around 25° c during the day and 15 at night, when mountain high usually cool at night, even in summer.
Thunderstorms can occur suddenly in the mountainous parts and also pose a danger.
When descending to the valleys became hot and humid and sometimes comes even 30 + degrees in the daytime and 20 night.
As you begin to approach the idriti weather reporting becomes more moist. The Mediterranean weather.


Visas
No visa is required for citizens of Israel, Slovenia is part of the agreement, and therefore Israeli tourist Shingen can stay in the country without a visa up to 90.


How arrive
The method of transport in Slovenia very Ljubljana-that is the capital.
From Ljubljana you can get anywhere (sometimes with a concussion) by bus or train. So if you want to perform a particular section or multiple sections of trail you think of Ljubljana as a base and supply point for transportation costs.
Each section (see outline below) begins and ends where there public transport can get you to Ljubljana from where you can get anywhere.


Flights to Slovenia is very expensive because the airport in Ljubljana and several small airlines fly there and usually there is direct flight without a concussion so it's cheaper to get through the State's largest airport is close to Slovenia for example Hungary or Croatia
Get your instance, cheapest option for quick and I found was to fly through Frankfurt to Graz in Austria near the border with Slovenia and then take a short train ride to Maribor.
I think this is the most affordable aptzia who want to go the whole path from the beginning because Maribor (the Northern starting point) from Ljubljana and is close to the border with Austria and again it saves the cost of a trip to Ljubljana.


Pramit (trip permits)
You don't need special credentials in order to explore Slovenia, no entry fees to areas defined as nature reserves

Simon
Very good check on most of the route. If you haven't seen a few minutes probably were lost.
There are less popular sections travellers placed little neglected to check in some places of the Karavanke range.
The problem begins in sitting there very hard to track the villages or towns (the route does not go through many populated places).
Populated areas a topographic map is not relevant and it is important to monitor closely their marking and use verbal description in the Guide.



Logistics
Point out from the beginning that the bbkatot mountains do not accept credit cards or foreign currency please obtain cash.
Track daily cost is about EUR 30 per day. I treat my breakfast + lunch + dinner + accommodation.
You can get to the bottom of Shaker and pamper yourself at meals more expensive beers/desserts and of course lower if sleeping in a tent and cook.

B

Tents
Camping is allowed throughout the country in areas that are not privately owned.

There is a camping prohibition on Triglav nature reserve (the only nature reserve in the country)
Camping areas are very rare in Slovenia for some reason. I saw only two or three days during the month.


Cabins

You can sleep in Durham or double rooms. The cabins provide warm blankets and mattresses and pillows.
Bedroom cost
During the walk you can track sleep or camp or lodge.
The cabins are managed by pazs.
Never done advance booking cabins but except one I have not rejected Lina and the others I've seen (and in that case I suppose I explain I have choices were find solution). In exceptional cases that there are no places to stay (eg. in answering the popular Hauser Triglav) let you sleep well on the tables in the dining room. I've seen people they put them to bed in a warehouse.
Almost all the chalets respect the Association membership card Israeli climbers is part of the International Association for alpinism, who displays the card receives a 50% discount on accommodation.
The cost of sleep varies from Hut to hut, and I don't know why.
Night in Durham between 6 and 9 euros for the ticket Owners Association (the most I paid was 22 but do not know maybe it was a hut owned or worked in)
Overnight in double room-double

The cabins are divided into three types.
The cabins are open seasonally only.
The cabins are open all year round (cabins in locations with lower vehicle)
Cabins open in season and on weekends in the off season
To check the status of their cabins you can visit the list of Slovenian mountain huts

Food
All villagers there are shops where you can buy groceries, you can also eat in huts along the way. I used option. The eat is in selling traditional food, mountain huts in Slovenia differ from other Alpine huts and prinas, no dinners and breakfast are but everyone buys his food and food and pay separately (think of a restaurant), and therefore a certain time for breakfast or dinner. But the kitchen closed at 9 pm and usually eat eat or drink beyond this time.
Kosher: it's hard to think of a strict kosher travel in Slovenia. Institutions to buy kosher food should visit the supermarket. Most sausage and meat sellers in cabins and in the villages is returned.
Alpine Club membership not placed on the credits food or drinking water.
Breakfast
Bread with butter and jam
Are luxury & Bacon omelet.

Lunch
ריצ'ט-barley soup
Utah-sauerkraut soup with pork sausage.
Klubasa-fried pork sausage
And bumpy-the next dish in England and around the dish consisting of sliced pork stomach cooked
Pagoda-Marc Becker

Dinner
Same as lunch

Desserts
Palazinki-cr?pe with chocolate or jam 3 euros
FL-strudel apple strudel
Drinking
Tea 1/2 euro
If you ask just tea (Chai) in fruit tea received is so sweet.
Planinsky Chai is tea plants
Czerny-out black English.
If you ask most received coffee black coffee with milk if you ask Turkish received the same coffee with milk
If you are addicted to quality coffee cappuccino, latte type etc. you'll find this issue only in large villages once a week +

Beer
In Slovenia they make beer not bad at all, the two most common types are ashko and Union, a kind of buffer. Excellence with every meal and at the end of the day. Price from 2-3 euros

Food in villages: the cabins very monotonous food and therefore it is very important to eat a variety when it comes to the village.
Most restaurants in the villages.


Water
The tap water in Slovenia are clean and safe to drink and the old sections and no water problem
On the Alpine way, because usually there is no sewage system and water all water chalets are rainwater and therefore not recommended for drinks in can buy mineral water between 2-3 euros
Because the Alps in Slovenia are limestone Alps the rainwater and snow penetrate very rapidly and therefore are Springs, rivers and lakes from which it is possible to purify water.


Cellular uptake and
There is cellular reception throughout the route to very specific places. I've never had reception mode all day.
-It's not bad. In large towns and large villages can be found online and Wai Fei only in 1 computer available for saw.
In most animals there is a cabin with laptop connecting to the network and can send an email, I have not.


Maps
The topographic maps of Slovenia produce by the Slovenian Association for PZS alpinism, accurate maps. קנ"מ 1:50000 maps are more detailed (1:25000) to certain regions. Also you can find in those places.
The maps can be purchased at:
Ljubljana you can buy all the maps
Along the way you can buy a map of the relevant region in villages or in the mountains.
Maps cost 8-10 euro

Language and culture
In early March, with Austrian regions. The population speaks Slovene and German, as you start to go south and close to Istria and the Adriatic Sea are starting to feel the impact. In the last part of the trail feel Italy, food, language and architecture.
The level of English in the country it is very good when it comes to young people in trouble with the German name mbgurim achlusit and Italian can greatly help.
In one case I was alone in the mountains with an older woman not spoke a word of English and somehow communicate with sign language.

Slovenian language
Slavic language with Latin as serious.
Who knows any Slavic language will recognize many words when written but very tough to understand spoken language because they distort and many words short and some forms of expression and different accents in each area.
There is the unpleasant feeling that sometimes had in France, when people were not nice when see that I speak French.

Safety
As I said before there are many sections defined as dangerous during the trail and therefore mention the subject.
In Slovenia boast highly professional mountain rescue service and their old extraction is carried out with the team and Harvester awaiting rescue about European standards as well as possible.
You can order the extract with direct telephone or call the nearest cabin and inform about the emergency.
It is highly recommended to go for with travel insurance purchased the land and ensure that it covers sports and rescue mossek.


Animals
In areas where the passes for a d you can see a mountain goat, deer,
There are brown bears in Slovenia but not in areas where passes.
I don't know about the dangerous or venomous animals in areas where passes.


The path can be divided in to parts:

Hi to all members
I take this opportunity have Internet connection to update some
Started on August 20 in MARIBOR and I ain't bad.
A lot of people scared me that rain in September how much longer Julia times combined 2 pieces for day 1 and walked a lot.
So I went on it 10 days IDRIJA and the end of the month for walking

Don't start to do a comprehensive review now, and save it to the comfort of the apartment and the computer.
I promise a comprehensive overview of this frenzied of the GR20 and GR 10 I made.
Say 1 word for Slovenian is much more technical than what I knew until now and sometimes the line between walking and climbing is very blurry.

Great, great great review Trek photos

Been here quite a few reports of Triglav area but I wouldn't be surprised if you receive a first course.

How human landscape Local majority or the Germans, Italians, French has been discovered the route.

Nice review. I'm always up for images (maybe it's just me, but I think I should reduce them).

How was the sack? Not too hot?

Great pictures and good review.

About pictures-reduce them, it would be fine. You can also get them after I brought them to piksha or Facebook (with the icon the icon image-link di)-these sites usually collapse them into a convenient size to display

Thank you for responding, I'm really glad you liked the review and pictures.
I need to add some things to review very soon, and actin.

Whether I am or not currently in testing with their Slovenian society and I hope an answer very soon. When I was in Ljubljana hopped and made a test file of track graduates and discovered neither of Israel since 1955 before the names listed in books or on file and harder to check it out.
BTW as evidence that an individual finish each track using a path and passport special stamps-add it to review soon.

-The scenery is very serious about Slovenian walks in nature, especially in the mountains. You can see whole families out hiking in the mountains with helmets and harnesses and difficult tracks and are very dangerous.
In Alpine areas of the track definitely feel better climbing than hiking. Everyone can breathe: talking about and climbing equipment and 90 percent of the people travelling on a basic-type equipment, helmet, climbing harness, 2 karbinerim on internal security and to myself.

In the areas bordering Italy and Austria see Austrian and Italian too often and people can see Triglav.
The lower regions see guys older doing single trips.
The difference between regions and areas pololaris Harari and villagers (after Triglav and South Park) is huge. Allow to be alone all day and not see anyone.


Dawn-sleeping bag was definitely hot. Most nights I slept with him in State quilt. Towards the end of the tmprotora in the mountains down to 4 degrees and then causes sleeping bag closed.
I really think that in close and close to the end + hoodies clothing can get to sight seeing. Arthur 41223.6375347222

That bag workhorse, I'm seriously thinking of changing it to megalite.
The night before last on the changing weather, rain is insane, thunderstorm and even ice on grass-and slept with him open.
