It encloses itself among the mighty walls of the 2,000-meter peaks and is also one of the starting points for ascents to them. It is about 6 km long and belongs to the area of the Triglav National Park. The valley begins at the artificial lake Jasna and runs along the Pišnica stream in the direction of Razor (2601), which is one of the highest peaks in the Julian Alps. In the western part of the Krnica valley, a picturesque road winds to the highest Slovenian road crossing, Vršič. Along the way, there is a memorial park in Mali Tamar, dedicated to the dead mountaineers in the Kranjska Gora mountains.
A forest path leads to the Krnica valley, which after 3 km leads to Planina in Klin, where the slopes of Prisank (2547 m) and Špik (2472 m) converge steeply. The riverbed of Suha Pišnica rises towards Vršič, and in the southern part the valley extends into the lap of Križ (2410 m), Razor (2601 m), Dovški Gamsovec (2440 m) and Prisank.
The cart track takes us through the forest to the clearing where the Krnica hut is located. The mountain lodge stands in the middle of a wide hollow mountain valley and is surrounded by beautiful peaks of Prisojnik, Razor and Škrlatica.
In Krnica, it is also possible to go on spring touring skiing from under the canopies under the surrounding peaks.
