Hike in the Plitvice Lakes National Park with a detour to a beautiful viewpoint and short boat trip on the „Kozjak“ 

The Plitvice Lakes National Park is internationally known for its beautiful water system. Of the cascading lakes about 16 are currently visible on the surface. Others are underground. These lakes were formed by the confluence of several small rivers and underground karst flows. The lakes arranged along the flow direction are separated from each other by natural, particularly unstable travertine barriers. These are created by an interplay of flowing water, air and vegetation. In the 1960s, the national park was the backdrop for numerous scenes in the film version of Winnetou. In the opening credits of Winnetou II, for example, Pierre Brice rides past Veliki Slap, while Lake Kaluđerovac represents Silver Lake, including the caves above it. This loop is suitable for all those who enjoy the beauty of the park on a longer hike. On more secluded paths, you can discover the full splendour of the park at your leisure.

“They take pictures of the mountain climbers at the top of the mountain. They don’t take pictures along the way cause who wants to remember the relentless climb, the pain and anguish of taking it to the next level – nobody takes pictures of that, nobody wants to remember. We just want to remember the view from the top, the breathtaking moment at the edge of the world. That’s what keeps us climbing and it’s worth the pain, that’s the crazy part. It’s worth anything.“ – Anonymous

Wir machten eine Kombination aus Tour H und K, da wir den See Kozjak einmal längs mit dem Boot überquerten und sonst gelaufen sind. Unsere Strecke und Erfahrungen haben wir hier ausführlich beschrieben: https://www.schmale-pfade.de/plitvicer-seen/ Die Plitvicer Seen sind wunderschön und auf jeden Fall einen Ausflug wert!
