The diverse flora, fauna and geological structures of Mangartsko sedlo and Mangart
These mountains are among the few locations (or, in some cases, the only location) where you can find plants such as the creeping avens and marsh yellow cress. The Alpine swift also nests here. Its unusual geological formation with reddish limestone sandstone deposits (Rdeča glava, Rdeča skala) makes Mangart very popular with photographers.
