Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Kranjska Gora, and then we continue driving in the direction of Rateče. In Podkoren we continue right (if we come from the direction Rateče left) in the direction of Austria and Korensko sedlo. Towards the border crossing we drive only a short time because soon after the first hairpin turn, we turn left on a settled parking lot by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we return to the turn, and from there we continue sharply to the left on an ascending cart track which is gently ascending by the stream. We soon cross a torrent stream and then on the other side we ascend on a steep and partly because of the water rough cart track. Higher, the cart track turns left and flattens a little. Next follows a diagonal ascent towards the left and then we reach some kind of a ridge. When the ridge passes on a slope, the footpath goes into a dense forest and for some time vanishes a little. We continue in the same direction, where the cart track already after few 10 meters again becomes more distinct. A little further, the path leads us across the next cart track, and above it we quickly reach the macadam road. On the other side of the road, we reach a wide and relatively new cart track, on which we walk only few steps, because already after few meters from there an old and partly vegetated cart track on which we continue the ascent branches off to the right. Cart track higher changes into a nicely routed hunting path, which is then in zig-zags ascending on a steeper slope. Higher, where the slope flattens the hunting footpath becomes hard to follow, and when the slope again becomes steeper it is again easier to follow. When a little further we the second time step on a macadam road, we walk there towards the left to few steps distant right turn.
In the middle of the turn, on an indistinct ridge we will notice the continuation of the footpath which continues through a dense spruce forest. On this part, the path is hard to follow, but if we follow the main ridge we go right. During the ascent from the right side unnoticeably joins another hunting footpath (carefully mainly at the descent, that we don't miss the path). Next road, on which we continue, we reach at the longer right turn. We follow the road or further a cart track to the spot, where it ends or changes into a footpath, on which in few minutes of ascent we reach the border ridge. When we reach the ridge, we continue right, and then on an easy to follow footpath we continue towards the southwest. The path which is accompanied by bushes blueberries, then with occasional views towards Austria comes out of the forest and few 10 strides ahead also on the indistinct peak of Visoka Bavha.
