This is my favorite lake in Slovenia. To get here, you have to do some sweating. The nearest way is to come up from the Lepena Valley branching off the Soca Valley just west of Bovec. It is a 600 meter climb up old WWI Austrian mule tracks. When you reach the lake, just 15 minutes past a mountain hut, Dom pri Krnski jezeri, where you can get needed supplies - pastry and beer. A great place to just hang out along the shores and take in the scenery for the rest of the day.

Address: at the north base of Krn Peak, Slovenia
Directions: Trails lead from the Lepena Valley near Bovec in the west or longer trails from Bohinj Valley come up over the Komma Plateau and old WWI Austrian storehouses.
