Route description

We follow the already known route along the former railway from Kranjska Gora and pass the Zelenci nature reserve on the right until reaching the road where we turn left into the Ponca Valley. We soon notice the world famous ski jumps, among which the “Velikanka” ski jump enables more than (?). The construction of ski jumps was possible due to the characteristically glacially formed valley, which leads us past the ski jumps to the start of a little more demanding climb. It’s a good thing that the barrier prevents cars from driving deep into the valley thus enabling cyclists to enjoy a peaceful ride in the beautiful and natural environment. The sandy road, several parts of which are filled with rocks carried from beneath the steep rock walls into the valley by the fast flowing mountain streams, leads us through the forest to the green oasis at the foot of the rock walls and to the very edge of the Triglav National Park.

The Tamar Valley is one of the most beautiful valleys and the mountain hut located at the very end of our tour offers pleasant refreshment. From here we continue only on foot since the mighty rock walls of Jalovec force you to return back using the same path. When descending look out for the sandy and sometimes rolling ground since if you were to fall on the sharp rocks it would not be good.
