Arrive at your destination, on the right you will get close to 2 km long and 40 meters deep throat; to the left you will find high sheer cliffs with wooden walkways, allowing you to reach many gardens filled with plants and flowers.
Too bad there isn't a lot of water running around, the route is quite challenging and slippery but an overall very nice walk in nature. more »
Wij hebben ruim tweeenhalf uur gewandeld zonder iemand tegen te komen. Goede wandel schoenen noodzakelijk, want soms is het rotsachtig en toen wij er waren veel bladeren (pad was vaak niet zichtbaar).... more »We have over and-a-half hour walk without someone. Good walking shoes are necessary, because sometimes it is Rocky and when we were there a lot of leaves (path was often not visible). Signage is not really clear. In the long run by a cave (again climb and claw) found the way back. Definitely worth it and parking is difficult to find.
Amazing gorge, very different from the nearby vingtar gorge. This one doesn't currently have a river running through it, but the cliffs, caves and nature around you is truly breathtaking. There's parking space right where google currently points when you search for the gorge on maps, and the trail starts there. There's also a small panel with information right there. There's not much parking space available, but the gorge seems way less touristy than other spots. We didn't have any issues for parking. The trail isn't an easy one, but it's not too difficult either. Make sure to wear appropriate shoes.
Almost hidden parking spot and start of a great hike of the Pokljuka Gorge. The route is pretty challenging and you need some directions (at least we did). Start at the parking spot and after 10 min there are signs for the gallery or the cave. I suggest to follow the "gallery" route first (that is the path left, dont go right to the cave, you will pass it on the way back), and after passing this gallery via the stairs, continue trough the botanic garden. After 450 meters, take the path that goes left and up. You will walk trough a forest and after a while you see a crossing of a natural bridge of the gorge on your left. Pass this bridge and follow the path (pretty challenging path!). After this path turn right with a fence on your left. After the fence turn left and then go right following the signs "krnicia /bled". You will end up in the cave and you will be at the point where you went left to the gallery. Total hiking time about 2 hours. Hopefully this is helpful! Really worth the hike.
Had it almost all to ourselves. It was October on a weekday, but I think this place is ignored enough to be quite magical.
Unfortunately the directions lead completely off-road. Right place to reach the most beautiful part of the Gorge is by parking at coordinates 46.379091, 14.041503. Otherwise it is a huge effort (the other path is reported badly) to risk not seeing the most beautiful point, which is on the bottom of the Gorge. Here the river virtually disappeared and left the gully created over the centuries. At one point of the itinerary we pass, with the help of a footbridge and a ladder, right into the gap created by the River, that leaves a lasting impression.
