Velika planina


There are about 200 huts on the alp, of which 63 form the herder’s settlement, belonging to 63 grazing beneficiaries. Most of them come from the 13 villages under Velika Planina and Krvavec and own about 500 hectares of grassland and forests. They own about 380 heads of cattle. At the beginning of June, the herders bring their cattle to Velika planina, and stay here for three months. Due to the lack of herders, some farmers keep their cattle in the paddock, while the other is free to graze on the pasture. The herd of cows is led by the most experienced, which has a bell around the neck.

Hiking


Path to the Kokra Saddle

It is the second of the two saddles in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps boasting with their own mountain hut. Also in this case, the starting point is the source of the Kamniška Bistrica river. The path is initially flat, and starts to ascend later on. There is a steel rope to help you cross the rocky part, so this part is suitable for more experienced hikers. All the effort is paid off once you see the view of the surrounding peaks. We especially recommend directing your look toward Grintovec, the highest mountain in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

Taste Kamnik


Tuhinj stuffing was prepared only for important holidays, which is still often the case today – nowadays, it is often prepared only for Easter. The basic ingredients are ham or smoked meat, white bread, eggs, onion, cream and various spices. Another popular dish from Tuhinj Valley is bread made from half-white flour and baked in a wood oven. Despite the changes in production methods, bread managed to keep its distinctive character. Sometimes, a woman who gave birth got a basket of white bread, as a blessing.
