Which sights can you visit?
If you are experienced enough, have checked the weather forecast, have chosen a safe route, are fit and have good equipment, you may still want to venture into the mountain world.
We recommend visiting the mountains in small groups and following safety recommendations. We also ask mountain visitors to go into the mountains with common sense and to limit their hikes to their abilities and the equipment they have.
Movement on the Ožarjeni kamen to Pršivec trail is life-threatening due to the crumbly terrain and rockfall.

Which safety warnings should be observed:
In addition to other equipment, keep a protective mask and disinfectant in your rucksack.
Due to the declared epidemic, mountain rescue is carried out under special conditions and in compliance with all protocols, the intervention time from the call for mountain rescuers to the arrival of the casualty is significantly prolonged, even if the casualty is on a mountain trail that is categorised as an easy mountain trail according to the categorisation of mountain trails.
All casualties must be treated as if they are infected with Covid-19 and on this assumption the helicopter crew may refuse transport in case a helicopter rescue is even possible (weather, wind or mountain conditions).
Mountain paths may be damaged, as the activity of the trail blazing has also stopped in the time since the epidemic was declared (broken ropes, damaged steps, damaged parts due to erosion activities and the effects of winter…).
Erosion (snow, cold, temperature fluctuations, etc.), which is particularly active in spring, increases the possibility of falling rocks, especially where paths pass under cliffs.
