Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go on exit Lesce and follow the road towards Bled and forward towards Bohinjska Bistrica. We continue driving towards the lake Bohinj (Ribčev laz), where we come to a crossroad, where we continue straight on the left (south) side of the lake in direction of Ukanc and waterfall Savica. This more and more narrow road, we then follow to a large parking lot at mountain hut Savica. Parking lot is payable.
Path description:
From the parking lot we go on a wide footpath in direction of waterfall Savica and Dom na Komni. After a short gentle ascent the path already brings us to a marked crossing where tourist path towards the waterfall Savica branches off to the right, we continue slightly left or straight on a wide footpath in direction of Komna. Path ahead is for a short time still ascending by Savica, after that it brings us on the first of 48 marked zig zags. After an hour and a half of moderate ascent through the forest, path brings us to mentioned 48th zig zag, from which a beautiful view opens up on lake Bohinj. Here the path turns a little to the right and passes into a valley named Pekel, where for some time it is ascending gently, after that turns to the right and it ascends a little steeper again. Already after few 10 strides path turns left again and is then ascending parallel with the valley. Further, gentle to moderately steep path, gradually passes over in more thin forest, from which we can soon see mountain hut Dom na Komni. Path ahead leads us past a smaller artificial cave, and higher also past a natural abyss, which is fenced, so that hikers don't fall in it. Further, path ascends a little steeper and after few strides of additional walking it brings us to a crossing, where the path towards the lake Črno jezero branches off to the right.
We continue straight on a wide path (mule track), which only a little higher brings us on the next crossing. We again continue left (right mountain hut Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih) on a path, which ascends even a little steeper and after few minutes of additional walking it brings us to mountain hut Dom na Komni.
From the hut we continue right (left Vogel, Tolminski Kuk and mountain pasture Govnjač) on a marked path in direction of the mountain hut Koča pod Bogatinom. Further, pleasant and entirely gentle path, in 15 minutes of walking it brings us to Planina on Kraju, in the middle of which stands mountain hut Koča pod Bogatinom.
On the other side of the mountain pasture path towards the mountain pasture Planina za Skalo branches off to the right, and we continue straight on a wide mule track in direction of saddle Bogatinsko sedlo and Krn. Path ahead ascends diagonally over relatively steep slopes of Srednji vrh, and in doing so on the right side bypasses valley of Gracija. Further, path ascends quite towards left, where it gets very close to steep slopes of Bogatin. Next follows only a turn to the right and path brings us on a saddle Bogatinsko sedlo, from which a nice view opens up on Krn.
On the saddle we continue straight in direction of Krn and lake Krnsko jezero (left Bogatin and Mahavšček, right Lanževica) on the path, which starts gradually descending. Path, that runs on old military mule track, already after few minutes of descent brings us on slopes, which are partly covered with dwarf pines. Even a little lower two paths branch off to the left, which lead on Krn (Krn past Vrh nad Peski and over Batognica), and we in both cases continue straight on still descending path. Further, path flattens, and from the left joins the path from Mali Šmohor. Few minutes of easy walking follows and path brings us on the mountain pasture Planina Duplje, where at the crossing we continue left in direction of lake Krnsko jezero and Krn (right mountain hut Dom pri Krnskih jezerih and valley Lepena).
From the mountain pasture Planina Duplje we continue on a gently sloping path, which in a little less than 10 minutes of additional walking it brings us to pearl of Krn mountains, lake Krnsko jezero.
Marked path then leads us on the left side of the lake by the base of the scree of Mali Šmohor. On the other side of the lake the path turns a little to the left and starts ascending on a bit steeper slope, on which higher unmarked (upper) path joins us. Upper path in ascending crosses the scree above Krn lake (this path is a little shorter but exposed to falling stones) . Path then turns a little to the right and it brings us to extensive deposits of torrential gravel.
With wonderful views of nearby peaks we cross a grassy meadow Planina na Polju (on the right side, little away from the marked path we will notice a hunting cottage) and behind it we start ascending through a small valley. Path then ascends a bit steeper and soon brings us to partly marked crossing. Marked path that leads towards Krnska škrbina here turns right (straight unmarked path towards the saddle Prag 2068m) and it starts ascending steeper. Path then passes to steep slopes, on which we in ascending traverse reach the saddle Krnska škrbina (on this part in early summer snow is possible).
From the notch we continue right (sharp left Prag, left Batognica and straight mountain pasture Planina Kuhinja) on path that starts ascending on a grassy slope of the mountain. We follow this scenic path to the top which we reach after approximately 30 minutes of walking from Krnska škrbina.
From the top we can descend to mountain hut Gomiškovo zavetišče in 5 minutes. .
On the way: Dom na Komni mountain hut (1520m), Koča pod Bogatinom mountain hut (1513m), Bogatinsko sedlo (1803m), Planina Duplje (1380m), The lake Krnsko jezero (1391m), Krnska škrbina (2058m)
