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, where slightly left the road continues towards the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja, we park on a large parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot at smaller quarry we continue on the right upper road in direction of the mountain pasture Kašina (left mountain pasture Planina Kuhinja 3 minutes). Road, which is further moderately ascending, already after few strides of additional walking it brings us on the next crossing, where we continue right again (left mountain pasture Zaslap). Relatively gentle road, which gradually changing into a cart track, soon brings us on an ample grassy slopes, where we step on pastures of the mountain pasture Kašina.
Here the road or cart track turns even more to the right, after that makes a sharp left turn, and after that it continues by crossing the slopes towards right. After approximately 45 minutes (from the starting point) of moderate ascent, relatively panoramic path brings us to with nettles covered mountain pasture Leskovca.
From the mentioned mountain pasture we continue slightly left on a marked and at first quite gentle mountain path. Path, which passes over on western and steeper and steeper grassy slopes, higher from the right joins also a little less beaten path from mountain pasture Sleme. We continue left, on already very steep path, which is ascending by the foot of the steep walls of Maselnik (1906 meters). A little higher path, which is because of substantial steepness exposed to falling stones, joins also the other path from mountain pasture Sleme. We continue straight on the path, which a little higher flattens, and after that turns quite to the left, where passes into a smaller valley. Next follows a little steeper short ascent and left a little below us we notice a lake Jezero v Lužnici (1801 meters).
Marked path mentioned lake bypasses on the right side and is then ascending by the foot of the scree of ridge Mali Peski. Higher the path turns a little to the left and over grassy slopes of Srednji vrh (2032 meters) ascends on small saddle named Prag (2068 meters).
On Prag, where there is a marked crossing, we continue left in direction of Batognica (straight downwards lake Krnsko jezero right Vrh nad Peski and Koča na planini Razor) on the path, which is moderately ascending on the upper slope of Batognica. Then we follow the path with beautiful views to the top, we reach the top in 15 minutes of additional walking.
From Batognica we continue on at first a little poorly visible path, which continues on the left side of the peak. Path, which is at first only slightly descending, soon brings us on steeper terrain, where we start steeply descending. After a short descent, we come to relatively steep stairs, on which we start steeply descending. On this part because of gravel on path there is great risk of slipping. Path ahead gradually flattens and only a little further brings us on notch Krnska škrbina (to the notch we can also come if on Prag we continue on so-called Northern path, which bypasses the peak Batognica the latter is a little shorter, but also less panoramic).
From the notch we continue straight (left mountain pasture Planina Kuhinja, right lake Krnsko jezero) on the path, which 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 in 5 minutes descend to cottage Gomiškovo zavetišče and then to mountain pasture Kuhinja we descend on normal path.
On the way: Planina Kašina (1049m), Planina Leskovca (1230m), The lake Jezero v Lužnici (1801m), Prag (2068m), Batognica (2164m), Krnska škrbina (2058m)
