Crossing the deep gorge outside Kobarid (at the Camp Site) via a 52 meter long Suspension Foot Bridge. Built in 1998, this bridge has been constructed on the very spot where the original wooden footbridge had been during the First World War. Wobbly enough, but the view beneath, the turquoise colored waters of the Soča River, its lush wooded shoreline with a backdrop of strata cloud slowly moving across the mountains was a pleasant distraction. Joining the trail on the opposite side, we trekked along the woodland walk through lush natural forest following a small river. We were heading for the Great Kozjak Waterfall. As we got nearer, the trail traversed the river several times, a rocky riverbed with small bridges to traverse. The walls of the gorge became higher and we could barely see the sky above. Finally we were there. A cavern hewed out of the rock by nature itself, an arena with the waterfall plummeting downwards into the green pool below. So beautiful.
Back to Kobaraid for some lunch in Hotel Havla in the main square. This 5th generation hotel and restaurant is owner run. We were treated to healthy, diverse traditional food and local wine. Excellent.
