This is the highest ascent on the Primorska side of Juliana – from Log pod Mangartom we make approximately 600 metres in altitude to Predil Pass and enter Italy.

From Log pod Mangartom, we hike through the steep Predilce gorge. The trail runs mostly through the forest below Strmec village and below the main road. Only a few steps off our path we can visit two waterfalls, right above the confluence of Predilce and Mangartski potok, and the waterfalls of Predilce almost below the pass, where can also enjoy in the view of the Predil fortress. The main road can be accessed before the former border crossing on the pass, at a beautiful panoramic point with a view of Mangart, Jalovec and Loške stene. We descend to the lake which is the perfect place for a romantic walk, swimming in summer, and then we continue to Cave del Predil. There was a lead and zinc mine operating until 1991 in Cave del Predil. We can still see the remains of the machinery, large dams of excavated tailings and a museum featuring the miners from Log pod Magnartom. The majority of miners left the town after the mine was closed, and the revival of the town is now slowly in process.

Safety information

The Predil Pass is one of the three stages of our trail that exceed an altitude of 1000 metres, therefore, it is the most demanding pass besides the pass over Bačarsko sedlo. In winter or in snow, usually from December to April, the described stage is exposed to avalanches and is impassable.

Since the trail runs across the Mangartski potok mountain stream, it can also be impassable during heavy rainfall. The best choice in such conditions is the use of the regional road that runs more or less along the trail.

Turn-by-turn directions

We ascend from Log to Predil along regulated paths, from Predil to Cave del Predil along the old military road, and continue along the main road to Tarvisio.

Right after the bridge across Predilca we come to a hiking trail that takes us uphill. We continue below Strmec village almost to the regional road and then descend back to the gorge, i.e. to the Predilce and Mangartski potok confluence. We can visit the Zaročenca Waterfall and continue across the steep slope to the top of the fault back to the gorge and the waterfalls of Predil. The last ascent above the waterfalls takes us back to the road and to the pass. We come to a path on the Italian side that takes us to the lake and around it. In a few minutes, we access Cave del Predil.
