About the hike to Jalovec

From its summit, which steeply descends towards three Alpine valleys (Loška Koritnica, Tamar, and Zadnja Trenta), a beautiful view of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps opens up. The summit features a registration box and stamp.

The peak was first conquered in 1875 by Karl Wurmb (with guides Črnuta and Strgulc). During the period between the two World Wars, the Rapallo border passed over the summit. One of the nearby Italian military observation posts was converted into the Špiček Shelter (2064 m) 1950, managed by the Jesenice Mountaineering Club. Jalovec is also featured in the emblem of the Mountaineering Association of Slovenia.
