Julian Alps and Triglav

The Julian Alps or the Julian Alps are the largest and the highest mountain group in Slovenia. They are in the southern and eastern part of the Alpine Alps and form part of the Southern Limestone Alps. They lie in the northwestern part of Slovenia and in the northeastern Italy, and their name is indirectly received after the Gaius Julius Caesar. Their highest peak, which is also the highest peak of Slovenia, is Triglav with 2864 meters. Most of the Julian Alps are included in the Triglav National Park. We divide them into the Eastern and Western Julian Alps. I shot Triglav not far from my home in good weather.

  1. You have a beautiful view of your house, Lado. That is very fun. What is the distance from your home? Have you ever climbed it?

    I also had a mountain view from my house, but the distance was quite far, it was around 90 km, which only seemed rather clear in the morning. We have many high mountains in Indonesia and there are around 20 that have altitudes above 3,000 m above sea level. The highest is Puncak Jaya or Cartenzs Pyramid which stands tall at 4,884 meters. I once climbed two of them.

    • My friend … my airline can be 15 km and in clear weather it is very nice to see from my home … I have never risen to Triglav … it is a very difficult path … you actually have more paths … the claws of the climbers and even the more simple ones just a lot longer … and probably I will never … I do not have enough fitness … but you have such a high mountain … probably there are many volcanic ones among them

      • 15 km is very close and the mountain certainly looks great from your home.

        Indonesia is the country where 3 of the largest tectonic plates in the world meet, namely the Eurasian Plate, the Pacific Plate, and the Indo-Australian Plate. All these plates move very actively, colliding with each other. These tectonic events have formed a row of mountains with the highest peak in Indonesia, and most of them are active volcanoes. In addition, our region is traversed by two of the world’s main mountain trails, the Pacific Circum and the Mediterranean Circum.

        Well, of course I climbed the mountain when I was young.
