The Pokljuka ravine

The treasury of natural sights above the Radovna valley.

The Pokljuka ravine lies above the valley of the Radovna river and is only 1 km away from the village of Krnica, 2 km from Gorje and 7 km from Bled. You can reach these places by bus, but if travel via private transport note that you can go as far as the entrance to the ravine above Krnica, or alternatively access is also possible from Zatrnik. The ravine is 2 km long and 40 m deep in its most picturesque part. It was carved into limestone by water flowing from the Pokljuka glaciers, the only reminder of which is the Ribščica stream, a tributary of the Radovna river. Paths for visitors lead into the most beautiful central part of the ravine. The main path runs along its bottom, while side branches lead to the edges of the ravine and connect it with Zatrnik.

There are numerous natural sights. These include: a tributary gorge with a 22 m waterfall when it rains, the Pokljuška Luknja – a spacious rocky cave with a fallen ceiling, a large natural bridge 24 m above the bottom of the ravine, and small round fields called “vrtci” (little gardens) by the locals. You can get through the very narrow straits in order to reach the most beautiful “little garden” and a small natural bridge by way of wooden galleries. Above them, a path will lead you through a partisan crossing, the only passage through this deep ravine. A diversity of vegetation, from ferns to forest and mountain flowers, grows in its bottom and on its rocky walls. The paths are similar to mountain trails – we recommend good footwear. To make walking easier, Pokljuka walking sticks are available.
