Chasing spring flowers in Slovenian Alps: Dovška Baba ...


Spring too often seems to take its time arriving in Slovenian Alps. But when it does turn up, it creates otherworldly scenes spreading wildflower colors everywhere.



Step after step, metre after metre up to the highest peak of Jesenice, where you can get closest to the sun and the stars, where the thoughts calm down and the dreams turn golden ...
The Karavanke is an oblong mountain range, with high mountains only in the west, changing into the mountains of medium height towards the east. Western part of the Karavanke is a natural state border with Austria and it extends towards the Kamnik-Savinja Alps in the east. Due to the sunny location and mostly undemanding relief they are a very popular hiking destination. SLOVENIAN MOUNTAIN TRAIL or „transversal“, marked with number 1 on all maps, runs along the ridge of the Karavanke.

The highest mountain in the Karavanke is Stol with the altitude of 2236 m.
