One of Slovenia’s most picturesquewaterfalls - Veliki Kozjak.

The Kozjak brook, feeding the Soča river from the east (on the left), springs high beneath Mt. Krnčica (2142 m), and runs through many pools making six waterfalls. One of Slovenia’s most picturesque waterfalls, the Veliki Kozjak, was created in the outlet of the lower Korita of the Kozjak Brook.

Approximately 250 meters lower, the water falls again. Here, the waterfall carved an underground hall. Its bottom is covered by a vast blue and green pool, and its walls are reminiscent of those in the Karst caves. A 15 meter high white water column offers its visitors an unforgettable scenery.

The Kozjak Waterfalls are accessible from the Kobarid-Drežnica road. There is a turnoff to the falls soon after the intersection beside the Napoleon Bridge.

On the way to the waterfall there are also remains from the WWI.

A large part of this picturesque stage runs along the left bank of the River Soča, before turning away from the river towards the end of this stage.
