GeographyEdit

It is separated from its main group by the Savinja Gorge. It has relatively flat top in the northeast–southwest direction. Its lower peaks are Jelovec (1,845 metres or 6,053 feet), Lanež (1,925 m or 6,316 ft), and Little Raduha (Mala Raduha, 2,029 m or 6,657 ft), and the highest peak is Big Raduha (Velika Raduha, 2,062 m or 6,765 ft). The Loka Lodge (Slovene: Koča na Loki; 1,534 m or 5,033 ft) stands east of the summit. The highest-elevation show cave in Slovenia, Snow Cave (Slovene: Snežna jama), lies on the western side. The western and northern parts are rocky. It is the site of the Grohat mountain pasture with the Grohat Lodge (Slovene: Koča na Grohatu pod Raduho, 1,460 m or 4,790 ft).

NameEdit

Raduha was attested in written sources in 1426 as Radoch. It is based on the hypocorism Radoh, derived from a Slavic personal name such as *Radoslavъ.[1]
