Menina Planina, which is also a symbolic border between Carniola and Styria, is the place to go, if you are searching a peaceful mountain world.
Menina planina is the spacious and wooden plateau. It extends over 20 kilometres by length and 5 kilometres by width. The northern part is higher and is hanging to the south. The height is between 1200 and 1500 metres. Menina planina is part of the Kamnik-Savinjske Alps. It got the name by monks from the upper castle cloister, which part was in the past. Vivodnik (1508 metres) is the highest top of the plateau and is located about 15 minutes walking from the Hut in Menina planina. In the past Menina planina was the second largest chalet region in Kamnik mountains, straight away for Velika planina. Today is vivid only the Biba planina. During the walk you can see flocks of horses, which lazy lie in the meadow or go curiously after you. Present are also the flocks of sheeps and cows, which can stand right in the middle of the path and don’t want to go away. The path is rolling and full of small lakes. You can also see small chapels in which you can ring and think of some wish which may realize. At the top will expect you the spacious view and much space for sitting by the Hut in Menina planina, good food and playground for children.
