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 a macadam road which higher brings us to B cableway station on Kanin. At B station, the road turns sharply left and then in a diagonal ascent after approximately 1 km of additional driving brings us to the next crossroad. At the mentioned crossroad, we continue sharply right towards the mountain pasture Krnica (left Gozdec). The road then brings us to a crossroad where left upwards a road branches off towards C and D station. We park near the mentioned crossroad.
Path description:
We go on the road which leads towards C and D stations of the cable car. The road in the initial part leads through the forest and is then for quite some time ascending in long zig-zags. Further, we are all the time ascending on a relatively wide road, that runs a little left (western) from the cableway. At the ascent in zig-zags we occasionally cross also old much narrower and steeper road, and higher also nice views start opening up towards the valley of river Soča. When we come out of the forest, the path is becoming more panoramic and we soon get to a bench, which is situated by the road. Further, the road gets a little closer to the cableway and soon brings us to C station.
From C station we still continue on the road which is from here on also part of ski track named Skripi. Further, the road is ascending on the right (eastern) side of the cableway. When we get to chairlift Skripi road becomes a little worse and starts ascending even a little steeper. On increasingly steep road further there is also quite a lot of gravel. Such a path then brings us to D station of the cable car.
At D station we continue towards the bottom station of the chairlift Prevala where we go right and we start ascending on a ski slope. The path on a ski slope then soon brings us to a saddle Sedlo (2300 meters), which is the highest point of the ski slope.
On Sedlo, where there is also an upper station of 4 seater chairlift Prevala, we notice a bigger blaze and caption ferrata, which points us on a footpath on the west side of the saddle Sedlo. The path is here slightly ascending and brings us below the slope of Prestreljenik where there is a crossing.
Left leads easier but worse beaten path towards Visoki Kanin and window Okno v Prestreljeniku (marked with the caption on rock). This path is also exposed to falling stones. At the crossing, we go right and after a short little steeper ascent we are again at the crossing. To the right leads the path towards the summit of Prestreljenik, and we continue left where there is the beginning of the secured path towards the window in Prestreljenik (marked with the caption »ferata«).
At the beginning of the secured path at first with the help of steel cables we cross a short exposed wall to a ledge. The path on the ledge then quickly brings us to a cave by the path. Further, we then for quite some time cross on panoramic and well-secured ledge. Later, the path for a short time turns right and steeply ascends with the help of stemples. Next again follows a crossing all the way to the window Okno v Prestreljeniku.
We descend on an easier path, which joins few meters before the window.
The described path belongs among easier such secured path and it is appropriate also for kids from 10 years of age. In spite of that for the ascent we need a helmet and self-belay set. The distance of a climbing part of the path is 40 minutes.
The entire path we can otherwise shorten a lot with the help of the cable car with which we can come to D station at an altitude 2202 meters.
On the way: C Postaja (1649m), D Postaja (2202m), Sedlo (2282m)
