Come here in the summer, and I'll take you for a pub crawl in the mountains. The beer in the huts is cold, the views are magnificent, the cows are happy, and so are you when you get to see the national Zillertaler Naturpark...

Thanks for the offer, I hope I'll get the chance to come back there soon, before I - probably - relocate to Western Alps

It would be cool having a "rail view" with a cam mounted over a running train. Or a "canal view" in Venice, with a cam mounted on a boat.

Don't be afraid of heights however - they might send you here ...


It would be interesting job though - imagine Google street view through famous Dolomites ferratas. Cable car views would be boring as Google Airplane view.

Almost every main line has its own youtube cabview video. But in some spots it would be interesting a 360° view.

Already long time ago. Still many adventures seek adrenalin going over the path. I would try that (with harness and rope, of course) but it is far away from here.
We still have here around some amazing vertical drops to experience completely safe, like Sphinx in Triglav with 300 m of vertical drop and additional 500 m to safe ground

Maybe from this photo it does not look so frightening but be sure that a view of this on the site is a good test of rigidity of your stomach.

Vertical on Eiger Westflank looks higher, but only few hundred meters. And accessibility of that viewpoint in not comparable. Above picture was taken from a viewpoint which is accessible with normal hiking, albeit long one.

I chose an easier path to Triglav.

Is there a disposition that every Slovene has to climb Triglav once in his lifetime, like Muslims go to Mekah?

In 50 years of political activity, one gets involved in almost anything, I think.

They even have it on their flag and on their 50-cent coin.

Yes, therefore in nice summer weekends there are very large crowds going to the top and you could wait quite some time to reach the top, as all routes to the top are ferratas with often very limited space for meeting opposing groups of people.
So I rather choose more suitable day for ascending Triglav. I also plan to reach the top in the winter (which is vastly more difficult) and to ascent on at least one alpinistic route from the north; my secret (very distant) wish is skiing from the top.
