The stage continues from Vogel (stage 9a).There are magnificent views of the Julian Alps and Lake Bohinj. Much of the route follows the ridge connecting the Lower Bohinj mountains.
The Adriatic Sea can be seen to the south of the Lower Bohinj Mountains whilst Triglav can be seen to the north. Triglav is the tallest mountain in Slovenia, standing out from the other peaks in the Julian Alps.The trail reaches the Triglav lakes valley in later stages. The Via Alpina does not go to Triglav, but you can make a detour that will take you a day.
In the glacial valley below lies Lake Bohinj, the biggest natural lake in Slovenia. The lake is 4,100 m long, 1,200 m wide and 45 m deep. Water flows into the lake mainly from the Savica waterfall to the west.
The trail leads across the slopes before reaching the Komna plateau. The trails here are a bit less visited, so you might find some navigation issues in Globoko pass. From here on it is just a gradual descend towards the Komna hut, which is a very popular day destination.
If you are fit, connect the two stages into one, whitout going to Rjava Skala/ vogel.
Exposed ridge trail, not advisable in bad weather conditions. In winter the area is very popular among mountain skiiers.
Rain jacket and plenty of water and food.
Go in late june, when flowers on pastures are blooming. Also, make reservation in the hut on Komna.
You can reach Bohinj Valley from Bled or from Soča valley.
Free parking available at Bohinjska Bistrica (whith shuttle service to the lake) or payable at the lake.
