Krn Lake (Krnsko jezero)

Print Add to travel planner
Address: Lepena
Krn Lake is located at an altitude of 1340 m.

It is 400 m long and 17 m deep and is considered the largest alpine lake.

Small, gluttonous fish (Phoxinus leavis) were brought to the lake between the wars as food for the trout and have acclimatised very well.

Krn Lake almost completely floods the basin at the foot of Krn that is surrounded with rare pinewoods.

The moments at sunset, when from the banks of the lake one can view the rocky summits above, can be very peaceful.

Duplje Lake is close by, smaller and shallower than Krn Lake, and immediately above it is the newly built lodge of PD (Mountain Association) Nova Gorica.

18 km from Bovec,
at the end of the Lepena Valley, above the lodge Koča dr. Klementa Juga, starts a »comfortable« pathway;

it takes about 2 to 2 ½ hours to reach the lakes.
