Access to starting point:
We drive into the center of Bovec, where from a crossroad at the main square we continue on an ascending road which past the post office starts ascending towards the nearby church. We bypass the mentioned church on the left side, and then we get to Kaninska vas. Bovec then ends and the road for some time leads towards the west. At a smaller crossing we leave the main asphalt road which leads towards the village Plužna and we continue driving on a slightly right road (behind the crossroad there are signs for road Gozdec). Behind the nearby homestead, the road once again splits, this time we choose a slightly left road (slightly right Zavrzelno and the starting point of the path on Rombon). Further, we are ascending on the macadam road which higher brings us to B cableway station on Kanin, where we park on a larger macadam parking lot.
To the starting point at B station we can come also by a cable car.
Path description:
From the parking lot few steps we continue on the road which leads higher, and we leave it still before the traffic sign, which in specific time prohibits further driving, right on a marked footpath. The path at first crosses route of the cableway, and then it passes into the forest, through which we are at first gently to moderately ascending. A well-beaten path at the end point of one of the ziplines ends, and we continue on less beaten marked path, which gradually passes on a steep and for slipping dangerous slopes, where we also cross a smaller wooden bridge, which is already in doubtful condition. After the bridge follows also some exposed crossing, after that slope becomes less steep, and footpath after the crossing of a torrent becomes gradually steeper. Few minutes higher we join the path from Bovec, and still quite steep path we follow to the mountain pasture Krnica, where there stands a shepherd hut.
At the hut we step on a worse road which after the left hairpin turn we leave and we continue on a marked path, which ascends above the mountain pasture and gradually passes into the forest. The forest soon ends, and the path continues through a pleasant mountain valley Krnica, where the path is at first still quite grassy, and higher it is more and more rocky. With nice views to the left towards Veliki Stador (2165 meters) and to the right towards the walls of Jelenk, Vratni vrh and few neighboring peaks, the path gradually passes on the slopes of mighty Lopa. Higher, we are ascending a little right from the valley Krnica, when we get closer to Prevala path turns right and it steeply ascends (here the old path led straight to Prevala, but because of construction of the ski slope it was diverted a little more to the right). The steepness quickly decreases and we reach the ski slope and saddle Prevala, where we go left.
From Prevala we ascend on the right edge of Slovenian ski slope, where already after few steps on the right side we notice the beginning of a marked path which leads towards Prestreljenik and the upper station of the cableway on Kanin (beginning of the path isn't marked). The path ahead at first ascends by the steel cable quite steeply upwards and then fixed safety gear end, and the path is for some time pretty steep and dangerous for slipping. Soon the path turns to the left, where it is at first ascending by old military trench, and then it flattens and crosses a steep and for slipping dangerous slopes. Already after few minutes, the path passes on less steep slopes, on which there is in a moderate ascent ascending towards the saddle Sedlo (saddle between Grdi vršič and Prestreljenik). After approximately half an hour of walking from Prevala we reach the mentioned saddle, and already few 10 meters before that we join ski track (if initial ascent from Prevale seems too dangerous, we can also come to the mentioned saddle on a ski track).
From the saddle Sedlo, where there is also an upper station of 4-seater chairlift Prevala, we notice a big blaze, which points us on the western side of the saddle Sedlo. Here the marked path turns to the right and starts ascending steeply on a steep slope. Higher, the path for some time flattens, and then passes over by the foot of Prestreljenik, where at first it ascends on gravel. The path ahead passes on steep slopes, where it is then ascending diagonally towards the right. Next follows a short ascent over a grassy slope, and the path then passes on entirely rocky terrain, where on some spots we have to help ourselves with hands. Higher, the path brings us on the main ridge, where we get some help from damaged fixed safety gear. The path then slightly flattens and in few 10 strides of additional walking brings us on a panoramic peak.
The starting point - Planina Krnica 0:55, Planina Krnica - Prevala 2:30, Prevala - Prestreljenik 1:00.
