Both sexes have horns, but male's are much longer and stronger than female's. They like to hang out in flocks, while the old males are loners.

It can jump 2 m high from the spot and up to 4m by taking a run. Their habitat are open rocky areas above the tree line, in the winter due to lack of food they descend to forests. (lovska-zveza.si)
We can not keep our eyes of your stunning photos of mountain flowers from the highest parts of the Posočje region. This time, behind the flowers, Mt. Jalovec is hiding. This 2643 m high mountain has always formed a symbol in the sign of the Slovenian mountain organization. It is a mighty, independent and high mountain of bold shapes that reigns in the midst of the Julian Alps in the embrace of the four valleys. His long-standing and mostly demanding hiking trails lead from all the valleys to its extent. Evidence that it is really high is a fact that all the accesses that lead to the top last for 5 to 8 hours.
LOCATION: Mt. Plesivec

Pečine is a village in the central part of the Šentviška Gora Plateau. The clustered core of the village, which lies along the main road from Slap ob Idrijci to Ponikve, is comprised of many small hamlets with one or two farmsteads. They are surrounded by fields and meadows stretching across relatively flat terrain, well-suited for farming. The Church of St. Mohor and Fortunat rises above the village; its beginnings reach back to the thirteenth century, when a small hamlet is said to have already stood at this site.
