In the heart of unspoilt nature
Golte is a high karst plateau that has reigned the eastern Kamnik-Savinja Alps for many years. If you still remember high school times and geography classes, then you definitely know what material builds the karst world. We are talking about limestone, which, due to its unique properties, enables the formation of karst sinkholes, caves and dry valleys. The karst surface literally swallows water, and this is also the main feature that gave this beautiful plateau its name.
The location of the Golte plateau is interesting due to its incredible proximity. The entrance station of the cable car is located only 17 kilometers or, to put it simply, a 20-minute drive from the Šentrupert highway exit in the direction of Mozirje. You will be able to park your car in the arranged parking lot next to the lower station of the cable car. The altitude of the plateau was perfect for a ski recreation center to be built in this excellent location.
Spend your free time as you see fit
The plateau offers an abundance of various possibilities for recreation and quality leisure time in nature. With the longest Žekovec cable car, you can take your children to the very heart of natural beauty. Cable car takes you to Hotel Montis, which can also be accessed by road. In the hotel, you can relax in the pleasant wellness center, which offers massages, saunas and different massage pools.
If you are more sporty, a hike along a wide variety of hiking trails is the right choice for you. Numerous marked trails, ascents and the circular ‘Road across Golte’ will ensure the realization of your hiking goals. Afterwards, you can rest your tired legs in the famous Mozirska koča on Golte and fill your hungry stomach with local delicacies.
