Valley Krnica in the Julian Alps

 

Wonderful days were inviting, so I visited the Krnica valley and the hut in Krnica with two friends. The cloudless sky, the sun, the snow, and all these views took our breath away.

Two easily marked paths lead to the hut. One has a starting point just above Lake Jasna (bridge over the river Pišnica), after the other we drive to the 3rd serpentine of the Vršič road and park the car in a suitable place next to Ruski Križ (Russian Cross). This route is a bit shorter and takes us about 45 minutes, and the other one takes about 1.15 hours. Therefore, the trip is suitable for both puppies and children, who will probably be most excited about the adventure in the winter when they will also be able to sled.

Currently, the hut is open on weekends for to-go orders. It may be worth mentioning that the path can sometimes be quite icy, so small crampons are good at that time. Of course, the Krnica valley is also a starting point for more demanding tours. From here, the path leads to Špik, across the Kriška Stena to Križ, Gubno, and Škraltica, the queen of Slovenian mountains. We can also observe the mighty Razor and Prisojnik.

But a safe step, you go to the mountains with your head, and even the easy path should not be underestimated. I share my tips, ideas of what to see and experience with you, but everyone has to take care of safety independently. Therefore, I do not accept responsibility for any injuries and accidents. Everyone knows how much he can do.
