With an altitude of 1562 m.a.s.l., Blegoš is 104 meters shorter than a Ratitovec, which has an altitude of 1666 m.a.s.l. It is a beautiful hill, that’s missing a few hundred meters to be a mountain, although it feels like a mountain when hiking over it.

Blegoš

From the summit of Blegoš, spectacular 360° view opens and you can clearly see Julian Alps, Kamniško-Savinjske Alps, Karavanke mountain range, and Polhograjsko hribovje (hills). About a hundred meters below the summit, there is also a lovely mountain lodge.

There are many bunkers on top, dating back to 30’s of the previous century. Bunkers are a part of so-called Rupnikova linija and served as a defence line against Italian attacks. Črni Kal is the highest starting point for the ascent to Blegoš, which makes the described route quite popular on weekends.

Info: Mountain lodge has defibrillator!

Slovenian writer Ivan Tavčar has found inspiration in this beautiful mountain for his book “Cvetje v jeseni” (Flowers in autumn), one of the most beautiful Slovenian love story. Valley under Blegoš is called Poljanska dolina and has lots of hiking and biking trails running along entire valley.
