Ascent using a protected route to the northern ridge and then continue to the crossroads for Dolška škrbina. It is advisable to wear a protective helmet as the trail can be exposed and the terrain crumbling. Soon you will find yourself in front of another challenge: You need to crawl through a narrow crevice (crack). Pass short scree and you are at the top of Mt. Kočna – one of the most prominent mountains near and far! Your effort is paid off with a magnificent view. After a short break, return to Dolška škrbina and then ascent to Mt. Grintovec, the highest peak of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. Take a rest and enjoy the unforgettable moments. To descent take Frischauf's trail that leads you to Češka koča. At Češka koča it is time to enjoy some great dishes made by Carmen, the keeper of the hut. Return to the Valley taking the already known trail. At your request, we can serve a delicious dinner. A little suggestion: After a long day you can pamper yourself with a relaxing massage and enjoy your evening in our sauna area. It doesn't sound bad, right?

Day 6: Šenk homestead – Via ferrata – the Češka koča hut - (theVratca viewpoint –) Šenk homestead

Enjoy your hearty breakfast at Šenk homestead. Today it is via ferrata day! Today you will experience something unforgettable! If you do not have a special ferrata kit (protective kit), you can borrow it on our homestead. You take a known trail to the Ravenska Kočna Valley (or simply drive there). From the parking lot go straight until you reach cargo cable cars. Follow the signs for the Kranjska koča na Ledinah hut. At the crossroads turn right, walking on scree. The trail leads you to the starting point of via ferrata. Get yourself ready and let the adventure begins. In the first part the route ascents steeply. You should use more strength in your arms (difficulty rating: E). Go over a short overhang and then arrive at less demanding terrain. The first part is behind you. On the left, there is a route that enables you to leave via ferrata. The route continues by steel ropes. Soon follows more demanding part over overhang (difficulty rating: D+), but soon the demanding part is over. Just a little bit more and you reach the end. Take a short hike over the meadow and very soon you find yourself on the trail that leads to the Češka koča hut. Those, who are not completely exhausted from ferrata experience, can ascent to the Vratca viewpoint. From Češka koča you ascent to Kamplejc (the biggest boulder around) and there turn right. Continue across the scree and enter a very narrow part of the trail between Vratca and Zeleni kup. The terrain is very crumbling and this part of the trail is equipped with some steel ropes. When you reach the top you will be blown away by a magnificent view over the Makekova and Ravenska Kočna Valleys. For descent use the same trail and return to the Valley. Spend your afternoon resting and relaxing. At your request, we can serve you dinner. Overnight stay.
