The hike through the picturesque Voje Valley along the Mostnica water stream and a steep ascent to Uskovnica pasture is a popular tour and starting point for other hikes to high mountains
The Mostnica Gorge and the Voje Valley are among the most beautiful and popular natural sights in Bohinj. You cross four bridges and two footbridges, of which the most famous bridge is the so-called Hudičev most or Devil’s bridge. The Mostnica Gorge has been carved due to water erosion. A special natural feature is a rock arch called “elephant”. The Mostnica Waterfall is 21 metres high and is the largest waterfall of the Mostnica water stream.
Uskovnica pasture lies west of Pokljuka and is separated from it by the Ribnica Brook. For centuries, Uskovnica was the main point of alpine dairy farming in Bohinj. Today, cattle still graze there and dairy products are produced, numerous small lodges and their exterior still preserve shepherd tradition. Koča na Uskovnici mountain hut is located in the main part of the pasture. A small chapel is located only a few minutes walk from the hut. There you can enjoy in the beautiful view of the mountains that surround Bohinj. You can observe interesting hummocky meadows between the hut and the chapel, which are quite a rare feature seen in the Slovenian mountain world.
Prior to every hike, check the weather forecast and trail conditions.
There can be fallen trees in some parts of the trail due damage caused by strong winds.
We recommend hiking shoes and clothes as well as enough water. Planinska koča na Vojah mountain hut and Planinska koča na Uskovnici mountain hut are open all year round, Slap Voje Inn is open in summer.
