Mangart 2679 m – attractive views of Mangart with surroundings

In many years I collected a lot of interesting photos from the 4th highest peak in Slovenia – Mangart. It is very easy to approach also for those who do not like to go to mountaineering as you can drive to the Mangart Pass on the highest road in Slovenia. From the top of Mangat Pass (2,072 metres) you can adore and take a beautiful photos of endless views on all sides, summits, rock walls. In this reportage I selected few the most interesting photos of Mangart and surroundings.
