Črna prst (altitude 1844 m) is a mountain, located at the southeast of the Julian Alps, precisely in the lower Tolmin- Bohinj mountains, at the edge of the Triglav National Park. On the northern slope of the peak occurres specific type of limestone with dark layers of manganese ore, which gave a mountain its name (Črna prst literally means "black soil" in Slovene). At the summit, southern and northern slopes of the mountain interesting plant species thrive. There is also a mountain hut of Zorko Jelinčič just a few feet below the top, which is open during the summer season. At a time when the hut is closed, basic accommodation offers a modest bivouac.

Slovenia 🇸🇮, Črna prst
Here is just a snapshot of my holiday in Slovenia. I knew very little about Slovenia until I met my very good friend Melita @melita_ko. She introduced me to the breathtaking country which is filled with incredible mountains wherever you turn, fairytale like places and people who are so selfless and kind that make you feel like you’re making a terrible mistake by leaving the country, as life after will never be the same again!! Fact.
Hiking Črna prst was a real challenge for me as I’m not a hiker but I loved every second! I managed to break some tough hiking sticks that I borrowed from a friend (😬) which showed my determination 💪🏼 (or my inability to use them correctly.. ? Hm 🤔). We so nearly made it to the top (!) but sadly the weather was against us 🌧… nothing to do with our speed. Honest. Until the next visit! 😁😊
