Mt. Javoršček

Medium/Demanding | 6–7 hrs

Mt. Javoršček, a 1,557 metres high elevation at the south-eastern edge of the Bovec Basin, was an important Austro-Hungarian point of defence. Italian soldiers repeatedly attacked it without success; nevertheless, they conquered it for a very short time in the Fourth Isonzo Battle, but Austro-Hungarian soldiers reconquered it during the counterattack. It remained in the Austro-Hungarian hands until the end of the combats.

Access and useful info


From Kal-Koritnica, follow the Walk of Peace signposts for Golobar. After the Golobar mountain pasture, you reach the saddle Čez Utro where a monument stands erected in memory of the Ivan Gradnik Brigade. Continue straight ahead and after a few metres, at the fork, turn to the right path upwards. The left path leads towards Drežnica. Leading from the fork to the top of Javoršček is an unmarked but well-trodden path that also crosses rather steep slopes at certain points.
