A pilgrimage to the mighty larch
Mala Pišnica is a closed 5-kilometre-long Alpine valley that was created by a mountain brook of the same name. In the upper part of the valley, there is even a part of a primeval forest with one of the oldest and mightiest larches in Europe.
In 1951, the area of Mala Pišnica was protected as a forest reserve (857 ha) and a natural attraction. There is even a primeval forest remnant in hard-to-reach areas, where the oldest and thickest larch trees in the world grow, with an estimated age of between 1030 and 1370 years.
