Za skalo Alp

The abandoned Za Skalo alp was renovated a few years ago by the Triglav National Park. The shady and undemanding ascent to the alp runs mainly through forests which give way to abandoned pasturelands as you near your destination. Za Skalo alp is a monument to the architectural heritage of high-altitude pastures.

It is also the starting point for a number of longer mountaineering routes, such as the one across Velika vrata to Dolina Triglavskih jezer (Triglav Lakes Valley), over Oslove škrbine to Komna. It is from this alp that many guided tours over pathless terrain set off. The Za Skalo alp offers a magnificent view of the Vrsnik valley and Bavški Grintavec.

Access: At the turn-off for the Na Skali village near the village of Soča turn off the main road and follow this road as far as Pod Zjabci where you will see a sign for the mountain path to the Za Skalo alp on your right side.

Estimated time: 2h of walking to the Za Skalo alp. Height difference: 770 metres.


Parts of the alp were transfered to Trenta museum.
