We drive to Železniki and there we turn in direction of village Prtovč. Asphalt road steeply rises and brings us to village Prtovč where we park on a parking lot in nearness of a Church.
We start at the parking lot and direct on the road stright forward. We come to a crossroads after a few steps. We orient on a left path over Povden (bottom). Path which is a car track at the beginning drops a little and the starts rising soberly. Car track ends and brings us through a forest to Povden saddle. It takes about 30 minutes to get here. We orient to right. Path goes into a forest for a short time and then we come to steep grassy slopes of Ratitovec. Danger of avalanches or slide in winter. Steep reduces a little under the hut and only 10 minutes of walking on grassy pastures are left to the hut.
