Source of the Soča, known as one of the most beautiful karst springs in the Julian Alps. Take the path past the Koča pri izviru Soče (Hut by the Source of the Soča).
Access: Turn off the Trenta – Vršič road at curve number 49. If you are coming by car, you can drive all the way to the hut.
Estimated time: 15 minutes of walking from the hut to the source. Comfortable hiking shoes and some caution in the upper part of the path, secured with pitons and steel ropes, are recommended. However, small children and the elderly are not advised to take this part of the path.
Zapotok Falls at the end of the valley. Walk up to the first of the three Zapotok Falls along the riverbed. The path to the other two waterfalls runs through the forest on the other side of the stream. Cross the stream at the point where it meets the path along the valley. The path winds past the troughs which the stream makes on its way from one waterfall to the other.
Access: From Koča pri Izviru Soče (Hut by the Source of the Soča) continue along the gravel road to a small car park.
Estimated time: 30 minutes of easy walking from the car park to the waterfalls. If you leave your car at the source of the Soča, the walk takes 30 minutes longer.
