The tourist resort Kranjska Gora is the starting point for this border-crossing stage and is in winter as well as in summer popular for a wide range of possible activities - whether hiking, nordic walking or cycling. Very close by is the Triglav National Park . From Kranjska Gora , the path leads up to the Karawanken . Along an old border path the way leads uphill towards the " Jepzasattel" - always with a great view of the surrounding mountains and lakes . From the peak of this stage it takes another two hours to reach the destination, the Baumgartnerhöhe high above the turquoise lake Faak.
