When I came back from my 2 weeks holidays, Vicky and I decided to drive to Logarska Dolina to hike to Mrzla Gora, a summit we had randomly picked on Google Maps.
Once we got there, our minds got blown by how beautiful the scenery was: mountains all around us, green grass meadows in the valley, trees surrounding the road, and a waterfall only a few minutes away from the parking lot (which, I have to say, was a little disappointing).
The start of the hike was pretty pleasant as we were walking through the trees on a trail covered with pine needles, until we reached the hut which ment the hike in the mountains was about to start for us.
After a beer, we decided to hit the trail, hoping that we could reach the Mrzla Gora summit at lunch time. We were definitely not prepared for what was awaiting us a few kilometers ahead of us. Even though it was not a steep ascent from the beginning, the trail was still demanding as it was mainly composed of small rolling gravels that made each and every step a little challenging.
After battling against rolling gravels and slippery rocks, we finally reached the interesting part of the ascent: the point where the hike turns into a climb. At one point, when we reached the rockies, the trail became a way through very steep rocks where only a cable is there to help you pull yourself up, sometimes we also had metal pieces in the rocks to step on, it was challenging but so attracting.
So after a couple of hours of hiking and climbing we reached a point that was almost the top of Mrzla Gora but realized that we had to climb up to then climb down on the other side of the mountain to finally climb up again to reach the summit of Mrzla Gora, so we decided to end our ascent there.
Once we ate a little something, we made up our minds on going back down, struggled a little in some spots, missed the trail, ended up hiking down 300 meters of elevation to then hike up 200 meters to go back on the trail, and finally got some rain. So as that was all exhausting, we obviously had another beer when we got back to the hut!
See you on our next adventure!
