Access to starting point:
From Tolmin we drive towards Kobarid or vice versa, but only to a spot, where signs for Kamno point us to the right (from direction Kobarid left) over a bridge. Relatively narrow and ascending road we then follow in direction of village Vrsno and higher Krn. From village Krn we continue in direction of the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja. When we get to a large parking lot right next to mountain pasture Kuhinja, we continue slightly left and for 200 meters we drive on a macadam road, after that we park on free parking lot by the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja, where there is enough space for approximately 40 cars.
Path description:
In front of the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja we go right in direction of Krn and we continue on at first gentle, after that on occasionally steeper path, which leads us on an ample grazing slopes crisscrossed with some grazing fences. With nice view on Krn, Batognica and other surrounding mountains we few times cross occasionally bad mountain road, and after approximately 40 minutes of walking from the starting point we get to former military hamlet on the mountain pasture Slapnik.
Above the mountain pasture we few times cross before the mentioned road, after that from the left joins the path from the end of the road or mountain pasture Zaslap. Further we are moderately ascending mostly towards right, after that path at altitude approximately 1500 meters makes left turn and starts ascending towards left. Higher we get to area named Leger, where marked path splits on two parts (crossing isn't specifically marked).
We continue straight (right notch Krnska škrbina, Krn over Krnska škrbina, Batognica, lakes Krnska jezera...) and after few strides we get to or by southwest ridge of Krn, from where a nice view opens up also towards Matajur, Stol and valley of river Soča. A little further from the left joins also marked path from Drežnica, and we continue on the wide path (mule track), which is in numerous short zig zags ascending by the mentioned ridge. Cottage Gomiščkovo zavetišče, we larger part of ascent see in front of us and we are getting closer to it on the path, which is becoming more and more rocky. Next follows some of walking by really nice views, and then we get to the cottage Gomiškovo zavetišče below the summit of Krn.
From the cottage we continue in direction of Krn and lake Krnsko jezero, on path by which we notice numerous old tunnels and caverns from time of first world war. We soon get to a crossing, where we go left in direction of Krn (straight notch Krnska škrbina, lake Krnsko jezero, Batognica...). Next follows a good 5 minutes of ascent and path brings us on panoramic peak of Krn.
On the way: Planina Slapnik (1250m), Gomiščkovo zavetišče na Krnu mountain hut (2182m)
