Mangart is a mountain in the Julian Alps, located on the border between Slovenia and Italy. At 2,679 meters (8,789 feet) above sea level, it is the third highest peak in Slovenia. The mountain is known for its steep, rocky slopes and scenic views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.

The summit of Mangart can be reached by a well-marked hiking trail that starts in the village of Log pod Mangartom. The trail is strenuous and requires a good level of physical fitness, but the reward for making it to the top is a stunning panoramic view that stretches as far as the Adriatic Sea on clear days.

Mangart is also popular among mountaineers and rock climbers, who are drawn to its challenging terrain. The mountain has several climbing routes, including the Mangart via ferrata, which is a secured climbing route that requires a special harness and equipment.

In winter, Mangart is a popular destination for backcountry skiing and snowboarding. However, the terrain can be hazardous and requires experience and appropriate gear.

The area around Mangart is also known for its natural beauty and is a popular destination for outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, and paragliding. The nearby town of Bovec offers a range of accommodation options and outdoor adventure activities for visitors.
