Aljaž Lodge in the Vrata Valley (Slovene: Aljažev dom v Vratih; 1015 m a.s.l.) is a mountain hut that lies near the stream Triglav Bistrica in the upper end of the Vrata Valley. The hut is named after the Slovene priest and composer Jakob Aljaž (1845–1927), who in 1896 ordered the construction of the first wooden hut in the valley. The original Aljaž Lodge was built in 1904, and rebuilt in 1910 after the previous one was destroyed by an avalanche. Aljaž Lodge is the starting point to ascend the mountains Triglav, Škrlatica and Cmir.
