This is a picturesque trail stage that runs past the remains of WWI to Log pod Mangartom, one of the most beautiful villages of the Juliana Hiking Trail.
From Bovec, we walk along the historic route past Ravelnik, the positions of the Austrian army in WWI, which are currently presented in an outdoor museum, and to the mighty Kluže Fortress, built above the 60-metres deep gorge of the Koritnica River. We continue along the right bank to the gorge and waterfalls of Nemčlja brook, past the lower part of the Možnica Valley and back to the main road that leads to Log.
Log pod Mangartom is a beautiful village nested below the peaks of Jerebica, Mangart, Jalovec and Loške stene. In the middle of the village, there is an entry to a tunnel, that ran to the mine on the Italian side, which was the source of income for many people in the past. The mine is closed now.
Log pod Mangartom is also known as the valley of waterfalls. Since the stage is short, we can enjoy in visiting other sights – Fratarica, a nearby and easily accessible gorge, full of beautiful waterfalls and river pools. It is located opposite the village, i.e. on the other side of the Koritnica River.
The ascent along the path above the gorge of Nemčlja towards Možnica (approx. 30 minutes) is partially exposed and insufficiently secured; in wet and icy conditions, special caution is necessary.
In winter (December to March), the trail below Rombon is exposed to landslides and impassable.
