Access to starting point:
First we drive to Tolmin, from there we follow the road in direction of Zatolmin (main road we leave at the traffic light). In Zatolmin we notice signposts for Javorca, which point us on an ascending road towards Javorca. Occasionally quite narrow and in parts precipitous road after approximately 8 km of driving brings us to a smaller crossroad, where the road towards Javorca branches off to the left upwards. Here we turn left and we follow the road for good 100 meters to marked parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot we continue on concrete road, which quickly comes in the forest and starts ascending steeply. After approximately 15 minutes of walking, forest gets thinner, and road turns sharply to the right. Next follows only few minutes of walking by the edge of pastures and road brings us to memorial church of the Holy Spirit on Javorca.
Church we bypass on the left side and we continue on a wide and at first gentle cart track, which quickly passes into the forest. Here we can left below us hear roaring of waterfall of stream Peščak, and we continue on a marked path (cart track), which higher over a bridge crosses the mentioned stream. Further, we are ascending on a moderately steep cart track, which ahead runs partly through the forest, and partly through dense bushes and bramble. Higher we cross one more of numerous grazing fences and path brings us to mountain pasture Črča, on which stands few old cottages.
And right before the cottages on the mountain pasture, signs for mountain pastures Sleme, Medrje and Laška seč, point us slightly to the left, where over high grass we ascend to indistinct ridge, on which runs grazing fence. Further, we are ascending by the grazing fence, after that path passes into a dense forest, where for a short time steeply ascends to a trough with water. Here the path turns slightly to the right, where after few 10 strides it brings us to the next grazing fence. We cross a grazing fence and we walk to cottages on the mountain pasture Laška seč.
Above the mountain pasture path goes in the forest, and it continues on a wide cart track. A little higher we come out of the forest, and only few meters after that, when we cross a grazing fence we continue left on a poorly visible and poorly marked path. Path higher joins cart track and only few meters ahead brings us to shepherd cottages on the mountain pasture Medrja.
From cottages on the mountain pasture we diagonally ascend towards left, where we quickly reach bad forest road. We follow the road to the left, and after initial gentle ascent, it gradually starts lightly descending. Higher we get very close to mountain pasture Pretovč, and at the crossroad by eponyomus saddle we continue right in direction of the mountain pasture Sleme. Road ahead starts ascending steeper, higher crosses a lane of dense forest, and after that it flattens and with increasingly beautiful views brings us to mountain pasture Sleme.
On the mountain pasture at monument NOB we continue left on panoramic grassy ridge, on which we walk to former crossing. Here signs for Krn and Rdeči rob point us to the left on lower path (upper path is because of impassibility closed for a long time), which crosses slopes towards left. Path ahead quickly brings us to steep and wide gully, over which leads very well settled path (if path is damaged then the passage is deadly dangerous). Path ahead passes on grassy slopes, crosses one more smaller gully, over which the path is also well settled. After that path passes into a lane of forest, where still crosses relatively steep slopes. Slope then flattens, and path over a grazing fence brings us on a grazing area of the mountain pasture Leskovica, where marked path starts vanishing. We diagonally descend a little towards right, where we catch path from mountain pasture Kuhinja towards the lake Jezero v Lužnici.
We continue in direction of Krn and we continue steep upwards. Further, we are ascending on steep slopes between Maselnik (1906 meters) on the left and Veliki Stador (1903 meters) on the right. Higher the path breaks and brings us into a smaller cirque, where unmarked path on Rdeči rob branches off to the right (turn off is marked). Marked path here turns to the left and it ascends over a short steep slope, after that it flattens and brings us on small saddle between Maselnik and Škofič. Here we continue straight and then on bottom path (right upper path bypasses the lake), in few minutes of descent we get to the lake Jezero v Lužnici, which we already see from before the mentioned saddle.
From the lake we gently ascend on a poorly visible footpath (direction north), after that we join the path, which on the right side bypasses the lake. Further, we are ascending on a nice high mountain valley (Peski po Lužnici), after that path turns a little to the left and it ascends steeper. Next a short steep ascent follows and path brings us on a ridge north from Srednji vrh. Here the path turns to the right and in few minutes brings us on 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.
On the way: Javorca (571m), Planina Črča (800m), Planina Laška seč (1000m), Planina Medrja (1133m), Planina Sleme (1448m), The lake Jezero v Lužnici (1801m), Prag (2068m), Batognica (2164m), Krnska škrbina (2058m)
