Logar Valley

Logar Valley is one of the most wonderful valley in Slovenia. It lies inside Kamnik-Savinja Alps so when you walk around the valley you have a beautiful view on the mountains around. There is walking trail from the start to the end of the valley but you can also use the car if you prefer. I suggest you to hike if you have time cause you will get most of the valley. On the way through the valley you can see Chapel of Christ the King, source of Crna, Charcoal-burner's Hut, Palenk Waterfal, Plesnik's Elm and the best of all Rink Fall at the end of Valley. If you still have energy then climb to Okreselj Mountain Hut. On the way there you will see source of River Savinja and enjoy in beautiful view on the mountains and Logar Valley. In the neighbourhood of Logar Valley you can see other interesting places like Robanov kot Valley, Solcava, Podolseva with Potocka zijalka Cave, Olseva, etc.
