Slovenia: Hike & Fly - Begunjska Vrtača
According to weather forecast, we will have a calm and nice day, so Rok, Jernej and me decided to go paragliding, destination Begunjska Vrtača, a mountain in the Begunjščica ridge. We started with the hike at 5:30 a.m. and via Lenuhova ravine (IV-/II-III, 300m), that was actually a walk to the top, since the season is very rich with snow this year, we reached the summit. As predicted, the conditions were awesome for safe flying and one by one we flew back to the valley, where we packed our machines and went to work.
