Mt. Peski

Hiking Researchers Groups
Demanding | 8–9 hrs

The 2,176 metres high mountain Vrh nad Peski was located in the immediate rear of the Austro-Hungarian line on Mt. Batognica. Thanks to its location and height, the Austro-Hungarian artillerymen were able to shell from this mountain the Italian positions on Mts. Batognica and Krn. As the front line in this section did not change, the Austro-Hungarian soldiers remained at Vrh nad Peski until the breakthrough of the front.
