Bovec basin was a glacially-formed lake during the last Ice Age. There are several spectacular gorges found in the area along various streams which resulted from a rapid ? in geologic terms ? subsidence of the Bovec basin. Here, just east of Bovec and the hamlet of Kal-Koritnica off the road to Vr?ic Pass is the 150 meter long gorge of Kr?ovec. The gorge narrows in some spots to only 1.5 meters wide in some places with a suspension bridge strategically placed enabling you to watch the tumbling waters below. To get to the bridge from the road, park at the roadside exhibit for the Golubar material lift a kilometer or so east from Kal-Koritnica. Go eastwards a short distance to a trail dropping down to the gorges. If you cross the south bank of the Soca and hike up to gravel road paralleling the river, then turn east for 50 meters or so and you will find the Izvir Zmuklica bubbling out of rocks alongside the road. The little stream flows across the road and quickly into the river beyond.
