    Slap Savica, Triglav National Park

    August 25, 2017 in Slovenia

    Beautiful 24 degrees today, perfect for a hike up to Slap Savica ( Savica Waterfall) in the Triglav National Park. It is 78 m high and is fed by a karst spring just above the waterfall. The waterfall continues in a stream which flows into the Bohinj lake as its main source.
    There were 500 stone steps up to the waterfall - lovely shady trees and the sound of water flowing over the rocks as we climbed the steps made it easier. Photos don't do it justice .Read more

    Day 225: Lake Bohinj & Slap Savica

    September 27, 2017 in Slovenia

    Slightly more relaxed day today. Got up a bit late since neither of us had slept all that well - the room got quite warm with the heating, so overheating under the doona happens quite quickly. Had breakfast in the room, then hopped in the car heading for our first destination: Lake Bohinj.

    This is another lake about 20 minutes drive west of Lake Bled. Quite a bit larger, but much more rural and remote. Since it was already after 11, we grabbed a couple of bureks on the way out of Bled and tucked in for an early lunch when we arrived at Bohinj. Very pretty scenery, since the lake was super still and we got lots of great reflections of the trees on the water.

    Everything seemed set up for hordes of people that just weren't there, so I assume it's quite a busy place during summer. I think you can do a lot more watersport here, like swimming, fishing and kayaking, more than in Lake Bled at any rate. I think it's probably also where Slovenians go on their camping holidays, avoiding the (mostly international) crowds at Lake Bled.

    Wandered around a little bit, checking out a few different vantage points and taking some photos. Surprised a young German guy at the deserted campground who was emerging from the lake in his birthday suit! Not sure who was more startled at the accidental nudity; probably us since Germans are stereotypically comfortable in the buff.

    Decided to press on for our secondary destination, Savica Waterfall. It was a bit further along the road we'd already driving down, at the far end of the lake. Another 10 minutes drive to the carpark where we actually had to pay for parking! Though thankfully the walk up to the waterfall was free, and Schnitzel was allowed as well!

    Surprisingly tough walk, around 30 minutes mostly uphill, and several hundred stairs. Good views from the top though, and the waterfall was very powerful though not as tall as the one we'd seen the other day. Nice spot.

    Back down we went and back to the car, where we drove back to our apartment in Bled. Rather than have another super busy day we decided to chill out for the rest of the afternoon, so Shandos had a snooze and I worked on some video and a bit of forward planning.

    In the evening we drove back around to Shandos's parents' hotel, where we had dinner again. More tasty food, good company and long chats!

  • Day8

    The next few days were predicted to be better weather so we decided to make a two-day hike in the Triglav National park. Our plan was to hike in the famous valley of the seven lakes. But instead of going up all the way to the top of mount Triglav, which is often touristic and would require more time, we planned some small modifications.
    The hike started with a steep trail in dark and muddy forest. On our first day we hiked for approximately 5 hours uphill through changing landscapes. From the muddy forest in which we started we went out of the trees and passed a lake with a mountain hut. Later, we passed lower vegetation and finally we had a last steep climb between the rocks in the mountains. From there we had a great view on the valley and we could see our hut where we were going to spend the night. The hut is surrounded between three lakes making it a very beautiful place to stay! After a big and early dinner (5pm) we decided to head out for an evening walk to another lake located a bit higher in the mountains. On our way there we were lucky to see several alpine marmots and pair of ibexes. Two hours later we were back at the hut. With a nice apfelstrudel, a warm cup of tea and almost 7 hours of hiking in the legs we were ready to go to bed.

    The next morning we woke up early and had a good breakfast. The sun was shining and the lakes along the hut were extremely beautiful. At nine we started our descent along another route to our last lake. We went pretty fast and had lunch in already two thirds of our trip. Somewhere in the afternoon we arrived at our starting point where we had left the car. We were happy about everything we saw and the almost 3000 vertical meters we climbed the last two days.
