The Martuljek waterfalls are true pearls of the Slovenian Alpine region
. Their easy access along the picturesque gorge makes them a popular tourist attraction.
Underneath the rock cliffs is the source of the Martuljek stream which cascades in three stages down the 110 metre high cliff as the Upper Martuljek waterfall
. The stream follows its path through a 500 metre long ravine dropping again over the 50 metres high rock face as the Lower Martuljek waterfall
onto a 400 metres long but narrow Martuljek canyon carved into lime rock.
The Martuljek mountain range
At Gozd Martuljek
, high above the valley, towers the Martuljek or Spik mountain range
. In 1949, this region including the Martuljek stream was proclaimed a nature park
, and it was incorporated into the Triglav National Park
