Krn is a mountain in Slovenian Julian Alps and with its 2244 m.a.s.l. also the highest mountain in the Krn Group. Interesting fact is, that the aerial (airline) distance between Krn and the Adriatic Sea is only 50 km, making a part of Adriatic coast visible from the mountain top.

Krn attracts many and is popular hiking destination. It offers amazing view far into distance. History of mountain Krn is also interesting. Here, fierce fighting took place during World War I to wich many remains from that period testify.
Let me help you find the path.
Starting point is exact location at which I started hiking trip. Usually it is parking lote. Please note, that my hiking trips are never close because I like to explore. If you want to get closer to the goal, use my starting point as a reference in maps and you can chose something closer to the destination. Sometimes I walk few kilometers, but sometimes even 10 or 12 km in one directon.
