Map / The Mlinarica gorge

In its lower course, the Mlinarica has carved out the Mlinarica gorge. Virtually inaccessible, the 700 m gorge reaches depths of up to 80 m and is just 1 m wide in some parts. The middle section boasts several waterfalls and pools.

In recent years, rock falls have altered the appearance of the gorge, particularly in the lower section. A marked trail leads to a beauty spot with views of the wild, steep, high walls that continue to attract visitors.

The source of the stream is situated between the slopes of Prisojnik (2547 m) and Razor (2601 m). The Mlinarica flows into the Soča.

Water sports are prohibited.

 

Access to the Mlinarica gorge

On the Bovec–Trenta–Vršič road some 23,5 km out of Bovec and 500 m before the 49th bend on the Vršič road, park your car in the large parking lot on the left side of the road. Across the road you will see a marked trail for viewing the lower course of the Mlinarica and the gorge.
