The Vogel Cable Car, near Lake Bohinj, Slovenia


The Vogel cable car takes you to Brown Rock, 1,000 metres above Lake Bohinj, and 1,535 metres above sea level. In winter, this is a mini ski resort, and in summer, it is essentially a view point. While the vista of the mountains and the lake is very impressive, the few (outdoor) vantage points can be crowded - a restaurant has muscled in and taken prime position. The cable car ride is also pricey at around 28 euros per adult. If you have time, it will be more rewarding to hike down, rather than return by cable car.
