The Pokljuka gorge is fascinating because of its lush forest, steep walls, natural bridges, holes, caves and tight passages between 50-meter-long walls. The gorge is 2 kilometres long and 40 meters deep. About 10,000 years ago, it was cut into the limestone by water flowing from the Pokljuka glaciers, a tributary of the Radovna. Later, the water receded, and the largest fossil gorge in Slovenia was created.
The gorge is ready for visitors and is a circular path that leads past the side gorge, wherein in the rain, there is a 22-meter waterfall, Pokljuka hole, a large natural bridge. Even though the gorge is mostly stone, various plants grow along the bottom and rock walls, from ferns to forest and mountain flowers.
