Access to the starting point:
a) Cross Border crossing Rateče into Itali, then turn left at Trbiž / Tarvisio in the direction of Predel / Cave del Predil. After a few 100 m, take another left in the same direction, then at the junction by Lake Rabelais / Lago del Predil, continue straight on the main road towards Slovenia (right Neveje Pass (Na Žlebeh) / Sella Nevea). There are some serpentines and a tunnel, then you reach Border crossing Predel, after which you take the exit to Slovenia again. Just after the crossroads, a side road branches off, where there is a marked parking area.
b) From Primorska, drive to Log pod Mangartom, and from there continue towards Itali. Before reaching Border crossing Predel, turn right after the Predel bridge (bridge over Mangart stream) in the direction of Mangart. Park just after the bridge in the marked parking lot on the side of the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue along the asphalt road leading to Mangartsko sedlo, and we follow it up to the first right turn, or to the place where it crosses the Mangart stream. At this bend, before crossing the bridge, continue straight on the footpath towards Mangart mountain pasture. Continue along the path with a fine view of Mangart, following the path which climbs parallel to the stream, and a little higher up, crossing the Stože landslide, which was triggered in November 2000. As you leave the area of the landslide, you gradually enter the woods, through which you climb moderately to the western edge of Mangart mountain pasture.
Once on mountain pasture, walk to the nearby shepherd's hut, after which follow the slightly overgrown path leading through mountain pasture. After crossing mountain pasture, you reach a strip of woodland, and then quickly reach a narrower strip of meadow along which the old abandoned road continues (you can also get here by continuing along the road at mountain pasture, and then turning left at the first crossroads in the direction of the Mangartth saddle). The fainter road or cart track climbs gently and then, after crossing the torrent, it finally turns into a mountain path. There is a moderate climb for a few minutes, then cross an asphalt road. On the other side of the road, climb up a flight of steps and then reach a clearing where the path turns left and starts to climb quite steeply. After a few minutes of climbing, cross the road again, and then, a few steps higher up, reach it once more.
Here, the marked path continues to the right (unmarked path over Gladki rob on the left) and leads to a small tunnel with beautiful views of the Loška Steno. After the tunnel, we have a nice view towards Mangart, and then, when we reach the larch forest belt, we leave the road and continue left along the marked path, which cuts around a bend. After a few steps, when you rejoin the asphalt road, just cross it and continue your ascent along the marked path, which first climbs moderately, then flattens out and continues crosswise to the right. During the crossing, you first reach a small ravine and then the Nakel ravine (the Nakel ravine starts at the border ridge itself and then descends steeply all the way down to the Koritnice river (a stream called Ilovec flows in the lower part)). Exit the ravine crosswise to the right, then the path turns left and starts to climb steeply. Climb steeply for a few minutes, then approach the torrent again, where the path turns right and climbs steeply over a short jump. After the jump, the path lays down a little, then over a mostly grassy slope, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, it leads us back to the Mangart road, which we follow to the right. Soon after we get on the road, the path leads us to the last tunnel, which is quite long. As the road is quite busy, it is a good idea to use a torch in the tunnel to make it easier for other people to see us. After the tunnel, cross another ravine and then reach a small crossroads where you continue left towards Mangartska koča on Mangart saddle. From the crossroads it is only a few minutes' walk before you reach the hut.
Behind the hut, look for the continuation of the marked trail leading to Mangartski sedlo. The way forward is first zložno, then moderately climbs the scenic grassy slope. Higher up, you reach an asphalt road, and you get on it just at the crossroads where the one-way road begins. Continue on the upper right road, and soon turn left onto a marked footpath (you can also continue on the road and climb to the border ridge or the cross path below Travnik from the left serpentine a few minutes away), which takes you past a lesser-known two-thousand-metre peak (Rdeča glava 2043 m) to the Mangartski sedlo.
Before reaching the saddle, cross the road once more, then continue right when you reach the ridge. The way ahead leads us along beautiful views towards the Mangart (Belopeški, also Klanškim) lakes and other surrounding mountains, with views as far as Carnic Alps, Gailtaler Alps and the High Tur. A few minutes' crossing follows, and then the aforementioned path joins us from the right, giving way to the Mangart saddle. After crossing Travnik or the Steep Nose, there is a crossing under the steep Rateški Mali Mangart, and then we quickly reach a marked crossroads where the Italian and Slovenian paths separate.
Continue left along the technically easier Italian route, which after a short climb becomes the Italian side of the Mangart massif. After a few minutes, the path becomes quite steep and leads to smooth rocky slabs, where we are helped by a few fixed safety gear, mainly rope ropes. After this part, the path turns slightly to the left and passes onto steep scree slopes, where snowdrifts are still present in early summer (snowshoe, crampons). Crossing the scree slopes, the path ascends and then turns more and more to the right. The path, which is also exposed to falling rocks for most of the way, passes higher up on the eastern side of the mountain, where there is a marked crossroads.
Continue right towards Mangart (left Jalovec, Vevnica, Tamar) on the path which continues to turn right. Cross another ravine higher up and then start climbing quite steeply up a steep slope, which is further exposed to falling rocks due to the considerable number of visitors. After a few minutes, when the path has been laid, we are only a few 10 steps away from the summit, with outstanding views of the surrounding area near and far.
