    25km, 873m ascent, 1079m descent, rating difficult
    Highlight of the day was stopping at a mountain alm for lunch where a group of Slovenians had combined a small amount of hiking with a large amount of drinking to create a mountainside party with band playing, dancing and singing. It was quite something to see. We came down the mountain in blue skies and sunshine and without any warning (it had not been forecast) a huge thunderstorm hit when we were in the forest. Generally these are short lived but it continued for the next couple of hours as we tried to work our way into our destination town and keep ourselves safe from the fairly close lightening strikes and torrential rain - it was such a relief to arrive at our hotel.Read more
