What is the plan

Tour passes the Mountain hut Pesnik after the 5,5 km. Pesnik was built before World War II. After 1945 its role was significant because the Hut Ribniška koča was burned down. They renamed it Shelter house Pesnik. Today is closed, due to bad conditions with mountain huts on Pohorje.

You will reach your first refreshment point on 18 km. Mountain hut Ribniška koča enables charging e-bike batteries and offer some food. Is an excellent starting-hiking point to the Jezerski vrh and Ribniško lake which are one of the most beautiful natural attractions of Pohorje. You can also hike to the highest peak of Pohorje (Črni vrh – 1543 m) and spring (Mrzli studenec – 1490 m) of Pohorje.
Top of the Pohorje is especially known for its unique sunsets and blueberries sites.
Some of the points of interest are in the protected area of NATURA 2000, so you have to reach them hiking. Please respect the rules that are applied in protected areas.
