Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Vintgarklamm (Slovenian: Blejski vintgar) is a gorge about 4 km northwest of Bled in Slovenia. It can be reached from Bled via the villages of Grad, Grinsce, Sp.-Gorje and Zg.Graben. The gorge belongs to the Triglav National Park and was already developed as a tourist attraction at the end of the 19th century. In addition, the river valley is one of the protected natural monuments.
The gorge was washed out by the Radovna River up to 300 meters deep between the vertical walls of the mountains Hom and Boršt, is about 1600 m long and ends at the 13 m high waterfall Šum. This gives it the largest drop in all river waterfalls in Slovenia. The Radovna River rises in about 1000 m altitude in the Julian Alps northeast of the Triglav.
A paid hiking trail (5 €) takes about 30 minutes over bridges, boardwalks and galleries through the towering gorge.

An early morning or late evening adventure is worth it. Otherwise it is completely overcrowded here and unfortunately you have to push through more. Unfortunately, this hike is not recommended during the day, even with four-legged friends.
Otherwise it is beautiful, the water has a great fairytale color. In some places you can deviate from the path and go down to the river, there it is a little quieter.
At the beginning and the end there are refreshment stations where you can get something to eat.

On my next visit I would save myself the long, useless hike back by buying the admission and turning around until shortly before the ticket booth at the end of the gorge and then walking back down the Vintgar Gorge in the opposite direction.
Then I have two great impressions, it's not that strenuous.
