Day 3: The summit!Triglav (05 Oct 2015) — posted on 18 Sep 2016
Wow!!! When I got up on the third day the sky had completely cleared and everything around was covered in snow. The view was amazing!
That morning the regular crew of the mountain hut went back home with a helicopter. A local team of meteorologist took over their task of hosting the hikers.
During the time I was "recovering" and drying in the hut I met two other hikers that were going to go to the top the next day as well. Afterwards they were going all the way down and would go back to Ljubljana and offered me a ride back. So we decided to climb the Triglav and hike down together on the third day.
Just before we left another guy decided to join us. He was a well-experienced hiker and had already climbed the Triglav 60 times. So he was a nice addition to the team.
The rest of the summit I won't explain. Instead I will let the pictures speak for themselves! Enjoy:

Everyone who arrives at the top should go through a ritual: bending over and getting spanked three times by a rope. So this is what's happening here:
