The stage leads over Vršič, the highest pass in the Julian Alps. A picturesque view of the northern walls of the highest peaks that you will remember for a long time.
The stage begins in Kranjska Gora (810 m), where we pass the Best Western Hotel Kranjska Gora to Lake Jasna and from there along the forest road past the ruins of the former Hotel Erika. We continue along the mountains and through the forests, along the mountain stream Pišnica, past Mihov dom (1085 m) and the Russian chapel, and from there we turn onto the old donkey path to the top of Vršič (1688 m). We are only a few steps away from the lookout point, where the face of the Buckwheat Girl can be seen in the rocks. The Russian Chapel and the Buckwheat Girl are the magic points of this section.
From Vršič towards Trenta, take the road. 200 meters below the second (26th) bend, turn onto a hiking trail and follow the signposts of the Slovenian Mountaineering Association until you reach the parking lot in front of the hut at the source of the Soča. We reach the spring if we continue the path behind the hut, and then return along the same path. Next to the parking lot is a large information board of the Soča Valley. Typical small poles in the Triglav National Park lead us to the information center in Dom Trenta.
