Besides Babji zob, the rocky walls of Iglica are the most prominent natural sight in Bohinjska Bela. The steep walls are a real paradise for climbers. Many famous Slovenian mountaineers, among them Marjan Manfreda, Tomo Česen and Marjan Zorč, have improved their climbing skills there. The Iglica Waterfall is located amidst the walls. It falls into a small water pool. The small village of Slamniki is right above Iglica; in the past it was known by the name Brezje. There, you can hike further to higher mountain areas or back to the starting point.

Author’s recommendation

  •  Don’t forget to take a camera with you.

Turn-by-turn directions

 

BOHINJSKA BELA – IGLICA – BOHINJSKA BELA

 

Start in the centre of the village and go left along the pavement; after approximately 50 metres cross the street onto a narrow asphalt road. After 200 metres you will reach a railway underpass. Keep right on the other side and after a short steep hill among the houses continue to the crossroads just before the main road through the village. Turn right to the hill, cross the Suha brook, turn right and continue to the end of the asphalt road. At the last house, turn right onto a stone road and reach the walls and the waterfall. There are metal steps on the right that will lead you to the top. At the top you can enjoy the view of the village, and Babji zob and other mountains. Continue along the path across the meadow to the Brezje settlement, where the fingerpost leads you along the asphalt road back to the village centre. Stay on the asphalt road and turn right before the wayside shrine in the village; from here it’s only a few dozen steps to the village centre.
