21. Walk to the Triglav Lakes Valley
Walk 21 – the ascent of Komarča to Črna jezero and the Triglav Lakes Valley, from a Walking Guide to Slovenia.
Viewed from any distance the cliffs of Komarča look impassable, but there is a path, a steep one, that leads to Črna jezero and the foot of the Triglav Lakes Valley (sometimes called the “Seven Lakes Valley”).
Start/Finish – Slap Savica car park
Distance – 3.8km/2.3mile
Height gain – approx 650m
Time – 2h50min
Grade – Strenuous; a short but exceptionally tough ascent on a steep and sometimes exposed path. Cables protect the route in places and, at one point, metal pegs provide the holds.
Recommended map(s) – are the 1:50 000 Triglavski Narodni Park or the Julijske Alpe vzhodni del (eastern) maps, published by PZS. There are also the 1:25 000 Bohinjsko jezero and Triglav maps, again by PZS.
Equipment – Walking shoes, walking sticks. See our clothing and walking equipment page for more recommendations.
Refreshments on route – A bar at the Slap Savica car-park, but none on route.
Updates to the 2019, 5th Edition – There are no updates.
Public transport – The Slap Savica car park can be reached by bus from mid-June until the end of Septmber. Alternatively, catch a bus to Ukance (Bohinj Zlatorog) and follow the signed path to the Slap Savica car-park and the start of the walk.

Car parking in Bohinj – there is a parking charge at all car-parks beside or near Lake Bohinj. For more details see, our Bohinj information page.
Nearest Town/Village – Bohinjska Bistrica. In the town and nearby villages, including Ribčev Laz there is a wide range of hotels, apartments, guesthouses and rooms plus there are a couple of camping sites – Camp Danica at Bohinjska Bistrica is our favourite. The town also has a good range of shops too.
