The Belopeška Lakes have several names. Mangart lakes, Fusine lakes, Klanško lakes, Laghi di Fusine in Italian, Weissenfelser Seen in German, and Lâts di Fusinis in Friulian. Quite a lot of names, no? The Belopeška Lakes consist of two large lakes (Klanško and Mangart lake) located in the Mangart valley near the village of Trbiž, not far from Rateče and the triple border between Italy, Austria, and Slovenia. The Slovenian name derives from the place name Bela Peč. The area of the two glacial lakes was declared the Belopeška Lakes National Park by the Italians in 1971. They are bounded to the south by Mount Mangart and to the east by Ponce Mountains. The upper lake, with a depth of 10 m, lies at an altitude of 929 m, and the lower lake at 924 m.

If you want to take a beautiful family photo, you should visit not only Lake Jasna but also the Belopeška Lakes in neighboring Italy.

The trail to the Belopeška Lakes is a bit longer but not too demanding and is ideal for longer family trips. From the Reset Apartments, turn left and follow the cycle path, which initially runs along the northern edge of the Triglav National Park, just below the Vitranc ski slopes. It takes you directly to the border with Italy, so don’t forget your ID cards. At the turn-off for Rateče, there is a small swamp that turns into a beautiful lake during heavy rains in spring and autumn. In winter, of course, if the water level is favorable, the lake turns into a beautiful ice-skating rink in nature.

We recommend that you take time for a short stop to visit the Zelenci Nature Reserve or take a drive through the idyllic Alpine village of Podkoren. Before turning off towards Planica, you can take a detour through Rateče, where you can experience an adventure in the Escape Museum or stop at one of the many taverns and restaurants that are known far and wide for their exceptional offer of homemade food and drinks. You can also stop at the Pehta log cabin, located under the Podkoren part of the ski resort, just before the turnoff for the Zelenci Nature Reserve. Here you can always try ’spoon dishes’.

Crossing the border is easy, as you are only reminded that you are already in neighboring Italy by a sign indicating that you are crossing the national border. Shortly after crossing the border, look out for the signpost – straight ahead for Tarvisio, left for Lago di Fusine. Turn left along the path through the meadows into the woods and follow it all the way to the main road, which takes you directly to the lakes. If you miss the turn-off, continue all the way to the main road, where you turn left towards the lakes, but be aware that this is a longer route and quite busy.

If you drive to the lakes, you will have to pay an entrance/parking fee. If you want to refresh yourself with a cold drink or an ice-cream, there is a lodge at the lower lake with a terrace and an extraordinary view of the mountains surrounding the lake.

Uper Vrata Valley
Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

A protected natural heritage Pericnik Falls is one of Slovenia’s highest and best-known waterfalls. Both of the waterfalls are free to visit, have easy access and offer stunning scenery. You can even walk behind one of the waterfalls so, if you are looking for a great family photo this is the right place for you. The falls are located in the glacial Vrata Valley in Triglav National Park, where the water of Pericnik Creek flows into Bistrica Creek. The upper Pericnik Fall is 16 m high and the lower is 52 m. Must see 🙂

Getting to the waterfalls

The waterfalls can be visited in both summer and winter. It is most attractive in autumn or spring when the water level is higher, and in winter, when temperatures drop below zero for longer periods and the waterfalls transform into a beautiful curtain of ice candles and sculptures.

We recommend that you go directly to the waterfalls by car or at least drive to the village of Mojstrana, from where you can continue on foot through the glacial valley of Vrata. From the apartments, you can also cycle along the cycling route to Mojstrana (described in the Mojstrana article), from where you will have a slightly more difficult climb directly to the waterfalls themselves. In the summer months, there is also a tourist bus from Kranjska Gora to the waterfalls (click here for the timetable).

In any case, the route to the waterfalls starts in the village of Mojstrana, from where you follow the road through the glacial valley of Vrata all the way to the car park and the lodge at the Peričnik waterfall. Whether you set off by bike, car, or bus, you will have to continue on foot from here. The forest path is well maintained and fortunately not long. It runs along the right bank of the Peričnik River (on the right side if you are looking from the direction of the car park) and after about 10 minutes it leads to the first viewpoint at the lower waterfall, which you can see from all sides as the path leads directly from the waterfall.

If you want to see the upper waterfall, you will have to go back along the same path a few tens of meters to the Peričnik – upper waterfall marker, where the path starts to climb steeply all the way to the viewpoint at the upper waterfall.

Attractions in the surroundings

If you are already in this area, it would be a pity not to continue all the way to the end of the Vrata valley, where the well-known Aljažev dom (Aljaž Lodge) stands at 1015m, with a wonderful view of the northern face of Slovenia’s largest mountain, Triglav. You can also see a giant wedge with a carabiner, a memorial to all the victims who were taken by the mountains.

On the way back, we suggest you visit the Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana. For more information about the museum, click here.

The easily accessible Sava Dolinka spring with its fascinating flora and fauna is the perfect walking destination for those looking for a relaxing break in nature. A natural reservoir with a magnificent view from a wooden observation tower over an emerald green marsh full of sand swirls, carnivorous sundews, amphibians, and nesting birds. The name Zelenci was given by the lake’s chalk layers and the numerous extremely clear springs that color the water a distinctive blue-green shade. The marsh, which never freezes, lies on the northern edge of the Triglav National Park. It is bounded to the south by the densely vegetated Vitranc Peak and to the north by the Karavanke Mountains.

Crystal-clear spring water reflects the surrounding peaks of the Julian Alps

Zelenci Spring is the remnant of the formerly larger Lake Koren, which was formed after the retreat of the Planica glacier. Sava river gradually overflowed through this natural dam and the lake level dropped until only the Zelenci and the surrounding marshes remained.

From here comes the Sava Dolinka (219 km), which is in fact another source of a submerged stream called the Nadiža, which rises near the mountain lodge in Tamar and flows under the rubble for most of the valley.

The greens have a constant temperature of 5 to 6 degrees Celsius under normal conditions, together make up an area of about 14 hectares and do not freeze in winter. The bottom of the lake is covered by porous lacustrine chalk, which permanently percolates groundwater in the form of ‘volcanoes’, a unique case in Slovenia. In 1992, the Zelenci were declared a nature reserve by a decree of the Jesenice municipality.

The area is home to vulnerable species on the Red List of Threatened Species. These include the common rosefinch, the whiskered bat, and the viviparous lizard. The carnivorous plant round-leaved sundew, which is protected under the Protected Species Regulation, is also on the red list due to its endangered status. The area around the spring is home to moisture-loving plants such as carex, alder, and willow, and flowers such as Pedicularis palustris, Menyanthes trifoliata, narrow-leaved muhly (Eriophorum angustipholium), Triglochin palustre, water ranunculus (Ranunculus aquatilis).

The famous naturalist Sir Humphry Davy is said to have written about Zelenci: “I liked the Sava Valley with its waterfalls and lakes the best. I know of nothing better in Europe.”

How to get to the spring?

A forest path leads off the cycle path on one side. You can reach it on foot, by bike or by car. In the direction of Rateče in Podkoren, turn onto the cycling route and continue to the parking area next to Zelenci. For the forest path from the other side, the starting point is in the parking area next to the main road. You can reach it by car on the way to Rateče.


The destination is ideal for a pleasant walk or a cycling stop. The water is not suitable for swimming due to the risk of eddies and live sand.

  • Walking on well-maintained paths through the swamp.
  • Enjoying the view from the viewing platform
  • Taking a photo for the perfect Instagram picture

Zelenci can serve as a starting point for:

  • a visit to Planica and a walk to the top of the legendary “Giant Ski Jump”
  • a walk to the lodge in Tamar
  • a visit to Triple Border (SI-IT-AU)
  • a walk through the Alpine village of Podkoren


  • a viewing bridge with the tower
  • explanatory signs
  • rare species of plants and animals
  • water eddies
