South above Lake Bohinj, Vogel Ski Centre is located on a high mountain plateau, which is quite an exceptional trailhead for many hiking tours, especially in spring and summer. Vogel is probably the most beautiful panoramic point to view Triglav from the south and also of the entire Bohinj. The cable car, operating all year-round, spares us about a 2-hour ascent to Vogel. Many inns and Merjasec mountain hut are open on Vogel
High mountain pasture Komna stretches above the Bohinj valley. During WWI, this area of Bohinj was part of the hinterland or a transitional area between the hinterland and the Isonzo Front battlefield. Many remains along the trail remind us of this period.
Dom na Komni mountain hut is open all year round and is located on a panoramic hill west of Lake Bohinj. The hut can be seen from the lake and its surrounding area. There is a panoramic terrace at the hut, which offers a beautiful view of the South Bohinj Range. The hut is also a starting point for hiking tourist to many Julian Alps mountains.
At the end of Bohinj Valley, above Ukanc and at Koča pri Savici alpine lodge, you can find the trailhead to visit the Savica Waterfall, hike to Komna, Krnsko jezero lake and the Triglav Lakes Valley.
Prior to every hike, check the weather forecast and trail conditions.
Take some time and visit the Savica Waterfall, one of the most beautiful and popular waterfalls in Slvoenia. You can reach the waterfall from the trailhead at Koča pri Savici alpine lodge in about 20 minutes. This trail offers you many wonderful views of Lake Bohinj, the South Bohinj Range and the west part of Bohinj.
