Cycle across the most beautiful pre-alpine pass

Three mountain passes await on a circular route that connects Savinja and Gorenjska regions. The first one on the road through Tuhinj Valley is Kozjak pass with an elevation of 658 m. The main road leads us towards medieval town of Kamnik, located under Kamnik-Savinja Alps. After we countinue upstream along cold and invigorating Kamniška Bistrica River towards Črna pri Kamniku where we turn right and head towards Črnivec pass with elevation of 902 m. Beautiful descend among the pastures brings us to Gornji Grad. We continue our journey through Zadreška Valley, Dreta towards Šmartno pri Dreti where we begin our final climb towards Lipa pass with the altitude of 723 m above sea level. Finally we descend back towards Vransko and Hotel Grof.
