Pokljuka Gorge dazzles hikers with its karst formations: natural bridges, overhangs, and caves. At the end of the Icea Age, a stream gouged a nearly 2 km (1.25 mi) ravine into limestone hills. The stream dried, leaving behind the largest fossil gorge in Slovenia. Keep an eye out for the Pokljuka Hole: a small cave with three natural windows and two entrances. The gorge's path is clearly marked and includes information panels. Wearing a helmet is advised due to the possibility of falling rocks, especially after heavy rains and in early spring. Planning Krnica trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
Pokljuka Gorge reviews
Short and nice walk through the forest passing one small cave. If you are in moderate condition you'll easily make it. We also met some families whit childrens. It is for free with free parking etc... more »
Beautiful walk through the forest. Bring a map since the markings of the track are not always visible/present. more »
great gallery walk
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.
