Kosutna (could be translated such as Fawn’s hill, but this is my translation and it is not official). Košutna is the mountain in Kamniško-Savinjske Alpe with an altitude of 1974 m.a.s.l. It is located near the mountain Kompotela, which has altitude of 1989 m.a.s.l. When hiking towards both of these mountains, you pass under known ski resort Krvavec, which has the altitude of 1688 m.a.s.l.
Besides amazing nature, on the way, you’ll find the beautiful lodge, called Koren (word Koren in Slovenian means carrot, but again “Carrot Lodge” is not an official translation.) This beautiful wooden lodge, located at an altitude of 1673 m.a.s.l. welcomes hikers with a lovely porch, that provides a nice view, but most of all safety and a place to rest. Lodge owners do not spare hospitality, that is why Lodge Koren has a nice little gift for a visitor, however, it is a gift to be returned and most of all, to be respected.
Kind owners of Lodge Koren do take care of every visitor. This idyllic lodge offers quite some free drinks, such as tasty traditional homemade alcohol shots (to name a few in Slovenian language: medica, borovničke, vilijamovka) and also non-alcoholic beverages. However, be kind and leave at least 2-3€ in the little iron coin-box, because drinks are financed from donations and our kindness.
