Best Hikes to Veliki Kozjak (Waterfall)

    Kozjak Waterfall, also Veliki Kozjak Waterfall, is the highest and most recognizable waterfall on the Kozjak stream, which flows into the Soča River near Kobarid. The Kozjak stream is a left tributary of the Soča and originates high below the ridges of Oble brdo (1957m) and Krnčica (2142m). Several smaller streams flow into it, the most important of which is the Muhrank, which flows through Drežniške Ravne and Magozd.The Kozjak stream has carved out troughs and as many as six waterfalls fall over rock barriers, the most famous of which is the second Veliki Kozjak waterfall, which is 15 m high. Veliki Kozjak waterfall is one of the biggest sights in Kobarid, also due to its easy accessibility. The waterfall carved a dark hall, the ceiling of which collapsed and the bottom of which was flooded by a pool of blue-green color.A well-maintained footpath leads to it, which starts in Kobarid at the bridge, also called Napoleon's Bridge, crosses a larger meadow, and at the end of it, at the stone bridge from 1895, near the confluence of Kozjak and Soča, we meet the first waterfall called Mali Kozjak (height 8 m), which falls into a pool 10 m deep. Along the way there are also a few caverns, remnants of the First World War.The upper four waterfalls are difficult to access, as there is no footpath to them.From June 2019, to visit the waterfall, it is necessary to pay a fee for the use of tourist infrastructure, which is collected by the Municipality of Kobarid.

  • Very beautiful waterfall, almost Lord of the Rings similar atmosphere. Costs since June 2019, however, 4 euros entrance fee and was extremely crowded and tight touristy :(

  • Almost mystical mood at the waterfall. The moss-covered and damp-dripping rock walls seem almost unreal. From the waterfall itself I was very impressed. The mood there is limited in the pictures.

    The path to the slap invites you to jump on the stones in the stream. Children have a blast. Unconditional recommendation!

    Danger. May be overcrowded on weekends and public holidays.

  • It is best to leave for the tour early in the morning or late at night, then there is not much going on at the waterfall.

  • A fantastic grotto is hidden at the end of a dark gorge. From a hole in the rock ceiling - together with the sunlight - a cascade falls in a 17-meter-long arch into a pond. If the water weren't so icy cold, one would swim to the circle of the sun in its center. And if the word wasn't so worn, this spot would be called “magical”.

  • Is a nice and recommended hike but in the meantime in addition to the time costs money. 4 euros per adult and children 2.50. In my opinion, half would be appropriate. Also this year I noticed for the first time a parking fee in the parking lot above the camp Koren.

  • There are many waterfalls - this is a special case, because here at the end of the gorge the water plunges into a picturesque, deep blue pool - almost mystical. A dreamlike atmosphere!
    This natural spectacle can be easily reached via wooden walkways!

  • Looks really great, admission costs 5 euros, but you can pay that. And the water in the pool also has a great turquoise color. 🤩
