Source of the Soča river

The source of the Soča is ranked as one of the most beautiful karst springs in the Julian Alps. The water, flowing from the mountain slopes of Jalovec, Šite, Travnik and Mojstrovka, gushes out of an abyss, joining the riverbed in a waterfall. Its fall is irregular and lively. Soča Trail, which starts at the source of the Soča, measures 20 km in length and runs down the valley to the hamlet of Kršovec.


Access: 15 minutes; by a well-marked trail from the mountain hut at the source of the Soča. In its upper section, the path is secured by steel ropes. Comfortable hiking shoes are recommended. However, small children and the elderly are not advised to take the path.
