You are about to set off on a journey leading you back in time. Your senses will be overwhelmed by deep thought, bird warbling, trees rustling in the wind, and last but not least by a feeling of tranquillity.
You can start the trip in the centre of the village of Rateče, at the Kajžnk House- renovated building with very well preserved folk architecture.
The path leads to the restaurant Šurc, where the visitors can get a short description of Rateče and main sights of this village at 870 m above sea level. Along the forest path to the 1509 m high mountain Peč numerous boards give hikers key information regarding Slovene- Italian border, pastures, grassland and the Julian Alps. After the Mountain Lodge Tromeja the trail splits into a longer and shorter one but joins again at the very end of the path- at the point of a three- country border, which is the junction of three countries, i.e. Slovenia, Italy and Austria.
