Waterfall Kozjak

Waterfall Kozjak

**V iztočnem ustju** of the Kozjak stream - the most picturesque slovenian waterfall was created - Veliki Kozjak.

Picturesque Kozjak waterfall is trapped in stone amphitheatre, not far away from Kobarid. It is reached by a friendly walking path above the riverbed of the emerald Soča river.
Kozjak stream, left tributary of the Soča river, **izvira v več povirnih krakih visoko pod Krnčico (2142 m)**, runs through many gorges and  falls in six waterfalls, from which only the last two are accessible.

**V iztočnem ustju** of the lower gorges of Kozjak stream, where the most picturesqe slovenian waterfall originates from - Veliki Kozjak. Approximately 250 m below the waterfall, water falls again.

Typical environment of waterfall Veliki Kozjak creates a special mood. The waterfall carved a kind of an underground hall, of which the bottom is a spacious blue-green pool, and the walls are *zasigane* like in Kras caves. From the darkness of this hall,** a 15 meters high white pillar is bouncing.**  
Tolmin Gorges

Tolmin Gorges


Tolmin Gorges

is a common name for gorges of Tolminka and Zadlaščica rivers, which are one of the most magnificent natural attractions in the area of Tolmin. The Tolmin Gorges are the most famous and most often visited natural attraction in Tolmin and the Soča valley. Tolmin Gorges is the lowest and probably most beautiful entrance point to the Triglav National Park. A circular trail leads through the wild gorges of Tolminka and Zadlaščica rivers,which merge in the only gorges confluence on Slovene territory.
What is there to see?
Skakalce - waterfalls, which literally jump from a pool to pool, a famous natural bridge– Medvedova glava, a bridge, that leads to Zadlaz and Čadrg villages, which is called the Devil`s Bridge due to its narrow nature and height.
A visit to the Tolmin Gorges takes a minimum of 1,5 h, or you can use the Gorges and their suroundings as a halfday or even a whole day trip.
