This is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the whole country. The water comes out of the limestone rocks of the Kanin massif and bubbles forth just above the waterfall. The waterfall drops some 106 meters and, of course, is more spectacular in late spring or after a course of heavy rain. There are two paths which you can take for a closer look than the road provides. The main path takes off from the bridge up the cliffs rising above the south bank. This is a rather steep trail that will have you sweating up to a viewpoint in about 40 minutes of climbing. There is a small car park by the Hotel Bok about 50 meters south of the bridge from which you can venture out. A smaller car park exists on the north side of the bridge. The trail here will get you all the way to the spring above the falls but this is a trail rated as ?very difficult? which is Slovene means ?good luck?.
