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. We continue straight, and we follow the road only for approximately 100 meters, and then on an appropriate place by the gate we also park.
Path description:
From the starting point we continue on a macadam road (road is closed for public traffic), and after few minutes of easy walking it brings us to main part of the mountain pasture, where there stand few cottages. Behind the mountain pasture the road becomes even a little worse, and after few minutes of additional walking it brings us to a crossing, where the path towards the mountain pasture Planina na Prodih branches off to the right (access to mountain pasture is very interesting, because we have to cross river Tolminka, and this is done by manual cableway). We continue straight, and road finally changes into a cart track and higher into well preserved mule track. After that path becomes a little steeper and past two benches and higher past fresh rockfall (earthquake in Posočje 1998) brings us to a grazing fence, over which we step on south edge of the mountain pasture Planina pod Osojnico. Only few meters ahead path splits on two parts. We continue on the right bottom path, on which in a gentle descent we quickly get to the hunting cottage at the source of Tolminka.
From the source of Tolminka we continue gentle ascent over mountain pasture Planina pod Osojnico, and from the left soon joins upper path, which is exposed to active rockfall.
We continue in direction of "Planina Prode and Prehodci" on path, which brings us to mighty torrent. We cross a torrent and on the other side we continue left in direction of Prehodci (slightly right mountain pasture Dobrenjščica). Further, we are gently ascending on a well preserved military mule track, which we can leave few times, because marked path runs on "shortcuts". Higher bushes and grass is slowly replaced by gravel, and path is turning more and more to the left. A little higher, we again come to mighty torrent gully, which is here already joining with nearby scree, which are falling from the nearby Mali and Veliki Kuntar.
Here to the left through mighty torrent unmarked path branches off, which leads towards the mountain pasture Planina Lašča and ahead on Rdeči rob and Mali peski, and we continue right on a marked path, which gradually passes into a dense forest. Mule track is then ascending in numerous zig zags and for some time still runs through the forest. Higher the forest gets thinner and path is turning more and more towards right, where it brings us to panoramic and steep slopes. Through wide carved ledge there's a steel cable for help, which comes in handy in time, when on the ledge is still snow (in dry is the passage entirely undemanding). Path ahead once again moderately ascends and in few minutes brings us to a marked crossing on Prehodci.
We continue left in direction of Krn (right saddle Bogatinsko sedlo and mountain pasture Razor) and we continue on a gently sloping and panoramic path. A little further from the right joins one more path from lake Krnsko jezero, and we still continue in the same direction. Path ahead from plateau terrain again brings us on a steep east slopes, from which a nice view opens up on Tolmin side (area is called Na Tminskem). After that path turns a little to the right and gradually brings us in smaller high mountain valley. Here it starts ascending steeper and after approximately 20 minutes of additional walking it brings us to a large monument to fallen in 1st world war.
Here we continue right on a marked path, which ascends diagonally by the foot of Mali Peski. Higher the path brings us to numerous remains of 1st world war, after that it slightly ascends and brings us on small saddle between Mali Peski and Vrh nad Peski (and a little more to the right are Veliki Peski). We continue on a marked path, from which soon unmarked path on Vrh nad Peski branches off to the right, and we continue straight and mentioned peak we bypass over a scree on its south side. After a shorter crossing we come on Prag, where joins the path from lake Jezero v Lužnici.
On Prag, where there is a marked crossing, we continue straight in direction of Batognica (left downwards lake Jezero v Lužnici, right downwards lake Krnsko jezero) 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: The Tolminka spring (695m), Planina na Zgornjih Prodih (850m), Prehodci (1639m), Prag (2068m), Batognica (2164m)
