Slap Peričnik - Details

Though it takes only 20 minutes to walk (steep) to the upper waterfall, you can easily spend more than an hour walking around and spending some time at nice spots. There is a lower waterfall, 52 meters high and an upper waterfall, 16 meters high.
The sun covers the area up to about 15:00 at the lower waterfall and up to 14:30 at the upper waterfall, something you might want to consider.
You can walk behind the waterfalls and in the whole area. No fences, just beauty.

How to get there
In Mojstrana (between Kranjska Gora and Jesenice), find a way to the Vrata valley in direction southwest. There are brown signs pointing you to the right direction (Vrata). It is about 4 kilometers from Mojstrana to the parking at Slap Peričnik (at kilometer post 6,5). First the road is asphalted, later unpaved. There is an information board at the right as you cross the bridge of the river, the parking is after the bridge on the left side of the road.

During the walk
The path up to the waterfalls is at the right side of the riverbed. It is very obvious so there is no GPS track for this short walk. Some wooden rail fencing was added along the path to the lower waterfall between 2016 and 2017. The path to the upper waterfall is unmaintained as a sign tells, but not dangerous.
​Just before you reach the lower waterfall there is a path to the left to the upper waterfall. You might want to take a raincoat with you if you want to walk behind the waterfalls.
