Triglav is the highest point in the Julian Alps, and is the focal point of Triglav National Park in Northwest Slovenia, near the borders of Italy and Austria. It is a great rock massif with three primary peaks, whose most spectacular feature is its North Wall, two miles wide and 4,000 feet high, stretching directly from the valley floor to the summit pyramid. The mountain's three summit ridges are equally popular routes for ascent, and climbing the mountain has become a proud tradition of the Slovene people, as well as people from outside the region.

The Julian Alps were the scene of fierce fighting during World War II, and a small memorial now stands at the foot of Triglav's North Wall.
