Walk 14 – to see the Slap Boka (waterfall), from a Walking Guide to Slovenia.

OK, so it is possible to see this amazing waterfall from the road and many people are content to do just that.  But we like to get a little closer and our walk leads through the trees to a cliff edge viewpoint which overlooks the gorge and across to the falls.  Its well worth the effort!

Start/Finish – at the bridge over the Boka River, 2km NE of Žaga.
