Dvojno jezero (Triglav lakes valley) - Details

Description
This walk takes you to the first three Triglav lakes. Črno jezero lies in a quiet and beautiful mountainous area. The path from there to Dvojno jezero (double lake) is very beautiful, mainly through woods and partly along rough picturesque rock walls.
The destination Dvojno jezero got its name because the two lakes are connected during high water after the snow melts and in Summer time there are two lakes close to each other.

The first part of this walk is the same as the Črno jezero walk on this site. If you want to spend less time and energy you can do that walk instead. I separated them for clearer trip information.

Be aware
If you have vertigo, this might not be a good walk for you. Although the path along the Komarča cliff is well secured and not difficult, it is rather exposed at times. Especially on your way back down a fear of heights will be hard to ignore.

How to get there
Coming from Ribčev Laz at Lake Bohinj, drive along the southern shore of Lake Bohinj to Ukanc and continue to Dom Savica and Koča pri Savici where there is a large parking (or just follow directions to Slap Savica anywhere in the region, you won’t miss it).

During the walk
From the parking, walk north to the bridge over the Savica and follow signs to Črno jezero. About 130 meters after the bridge, take the path to Črno jezero that branches off to the left. The path is well way marked with red-white dots.
First the path goes up the slope through beech forest. There are signs to Črno jezero where needed. At two points during the scramble along the Komarča cliff you come across a little waterfall. The second point is a nice place to relax and use the water as refreshment.
When you reach a stone with the elevation of 1267 meters painted on it, you have done most of the climbing. This stone is on a ridge with steep slopes on both sides.
When you arrive at Črno jezero, a path along the north side of the lake continues to the other lakes in the Triglav lake valley, signposted with Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih.
This Koča (mountain hut) lies at Dvojno jezero.
The path between the lakes rises gently for a long time and short before you arrive at Dvojno jezero there is a steeper section. You arrive at a valley with the lake(s) surrounded by larches.
