Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce, and then we continue driving towards Bled. In Bled "we ignore" left turn-offs in the direction towards Koritno, Bodešče, Ribno and Selo and we continue driving to the traffic light, where a road branches off to the right towards Gorje and Pokljuka. At the mentioned crossroad, we continue straight and we start descending towards Lake Bled. When on the left we notice Chinese restaurant Peking we leave the main road towards Bohinjska Bistrica and behind restaurant we continue left on street Ulica Narodnih herojev. At few smaller crossroads, we continue on the main road, and then we get to the road Cankarjeva cesta, on which we drive for some time, or to a crossroad at the chapel, where we continue slightly right in the direction of Selo and Dobra gora (still on the main road Ribno). We continue driving on a gradually narrower road which for some time leads by meadows and fields, and then passes into the forest through which it starts descending. Lower forest ends, and we get to the village Selo and a little further also at the smaller crossroad, where we continue straight (left and then immediately right) downwards in the direction of Sava and Kupljenik (left Ribno, right Bled). Next follows some descent on still relatively narrow road, and then the asphalt ends, and on a little wider macadam road we drive to the bridge Selski most over the river Sava Bohinjka. We park on an appropriate place by the bridge.
B) First, we drive to Podbrdo and from there in Bohinjska Bistrica (with car shuttle train or over Soriška planina). From Bohinjska Bistrica we continue driving towards Bled, and there, when we get to the lake we turn right in the direction of Selo. Further, we drive on a narrow road Mlinska cesta. Bled soon ends, and still relatively narrow and the road brings us in the village Selo, where at the smaller crossroad in the middle of the village we continue right in the direction of Sava and Kupljenik (left Bled, straight Ribno). Next follows some descent on still relatively narrow road, and then the asphalt ends, and on a little wider macadam road we drive to the bridge Selski most over the river Sava Bohinjka. We park on an appropriate place by the bridge.
Path description:
From the starting point, we go over a bridge through Sava Bohinjka, from which a nice view opens up on Ribenska gora, and after the bridge we continue right in the direction of Bohinjska Bela, Kupljenik and Talež. We short time continue on the macadam road, and then we get to a smaller crossroad, where at first still road branches off to the left towards Talež, and we continue straight in the direction of Kupljenik. We still continue on the road, and then at the next crossroad, which isn't marked we continue slightly left, so that we walk by the right edge of the nearby fence. Further still gentle road changes into a cart track which at the crossings we follow in the direction of Kupljenik. Few minutes ahead, when the path passes on slopes of Hom (675 meters), it starts ascending steeper towards the right, and in doing so it leads us through quite steep slopes. Higher the forest for some time ends and the path brings us to a nice viewpoint at the chapel Na Koren, where we can for a short time stop and enjoy nice views.
The path ahead for some time returns in the forest and then it leads by the edge of meadows. A little behind the NOB memorial, which we notice on the left side, the path turns a little more to the left and with a view on Babji zob starts ascending towards the settlement Kupljenik. Asphalt road which leads through Kupljenik we reach few steps above the small chapel, and we follow it left in the direction of Jama. The path ahead leads us past relatively new cross, and then the road slowly starts turning more and more to the right. At the smaller crossroad, which is situated among individual houses we continue right (left Talež), and then we continue on a gently sloping asphalt road, from which beautiful views opening up towards Karawanks and Lake Bled. Past another NOB monument and past the fire station, we soon get to the spot, where a short path branches off to the left towards the church of St. Štefan (from the church through the meadow it is possible to continue to a marked path Kupljenik - Babji zob, because in the mentioned direction also signs for cave Jama pod Babjim zobom pointing to, but locals rather see, that we use few minutes longer path, which avoids the meadow), and we continue straight, on the road which at first turns a little to the right, and then turns left and descends to the right hairpin turn.
On the right hairpin turn we leave the road and we continue straight on a marked parking lot, where there is the beginning of marked footpath Kupljenik - Babji zob.
From marked parking lot we continue on a bad road in the direction of cave Jama pod Babjim zobom and Babji zob. The road at first leads us by the edge of the pasture, from where for some time a nice view opens up, which reaches all the way to the highest peaks of Karawanks, and after the left turn, where we notice hiking signposts gradually passes into the forest. Few minutes we walk on the road, after that on a relatively new crossroad of the macadam roads we continue slightly left (in the time of the description crossing wasn't marked) on a cart track which after few meters turns more to the left (straight cave Jama pod Babjim zobom). Next follows an ascent through the forest, and few minutes higher cart track brings us on a panoramic meadow, where by its lower edge is situated a wooden cottage, and nice view opens up towards Lake Bled and part of Karawanks around Golica. Cart track only a little higher brings us on other meadow, where signs lead right, on at first poorly noticeably footpath which passes into the forest. When we step into the forest, the footpath becomes easy to follow, and it starts ascending steeper. Few minutes higher we cross new, not yet fully completed forest road, and above it marked path is quite steeply ascending through the forest. When the path turns right it flattens a little and then it is ascending diagonally towards the right over steeper and steeper slopes. Higher slope becomes even steeper, but the path is relatively wide, so crossing doesn't cause bigger problems, but in wet, snow or leaves a little more caution is needed, especially on the descent. When the path bypasses some rocky towers it turns left, passes into a small valley, and few steps ahead also out of the forest on the mountain pasture Planina Prihod, which has just the right name (arrival), because we came on the edge of Jelovica.
When we reach the mountain pasture, we continue straight or slightly towards the right, and then we step on a cart track, where joins the path from the mountain pasture Vršana and Danejeva planina. Cart track soon changes into a footpath which with "a help" of signpost leads on precipitous ridge. The path mostly runs few meters left from the precipice, so there isn't any significant danger for slipping, we have to be careful mainly, when for a nice view we step few steps to the right from the marked path. The path, from which through the treetops nice view opening up towards Bled, Bohinjska Bela and the highest peaks of Julian Alps, brings us on the secondary peak, where poorly noticeable footpath towards the nearby mountain pasture Ricman branches off to the left.
We continue straight, on the path which starts visibly descending. After few minutes descent ends, and to the vantage point and inscription box on Babji zob separates us only a short moderate ascent.
