The secluded Karst Plateau is surrounded on all sides by the masses of impermeable rock. On the mountain, there are many sinkholes and several karst caves; certainly, the most famous cave is the Ice Cave, which would be used by local farmers for many years as a natural fridge, because it keeps snow throughout the year. More skilled hikers can try the local dishes offered on mountain heights by going to the Pastoral Culinary Path. For families with small children or less skilled hikers, the Mozirska Hut, located within 15 minutes from the Hotel Golte and 500 meters from the ski slopes, serves as an ideal haven for all hikers and winter skiers. The hut is always open. It is more peaceful on the eastern part of the plateau. On their way, hikers cross the karst thorns and the former pots for feeding livestock. Golte is a great starting point for mountain routes all the way to Smrekovac, Boskovac, Raduha, etc. The nearby Smrekovec is a 15-kilometer long mountain range in the pre-Alpine world and is the only climb of volcanic origin in Slovenia. In 1987, Golte was declared a landscape park, where a strict protection regime applies.
Nature gives us everything we need to be healthy, active and happy. The Alpine Garden is located close to Mozirska Koča (5-minute walk). The wild growing plants we encounter in the mountain world between the rocks certainly represent a special gift of nature for anyone who loves hills due to their special nature, which guarantees their survival in extreme conditions: cracks, rocky shelves and other places without much soil for survival.
