The Boka waterfall
Boka waterfall, Bovec
144 m high and 18 m wide, Slovenia's most majestic waterfall with the highest flow rate is considered one of the most magnificent waterfalls in Europe.
Accumulating up in the Kanin mountains, the water springs from a large karst source and falls freely for 106 m, followed immediately by another 30 m drop. Pounding and carving the rocky bed, the waters continue to increase in volume as they fall deeper.
The Boka waterfall flow rate is highest in spring and autumn, reaching up to 100 m³/s, while it can drop to as little as 2 m³/s in summer.
The rectangular basin with the Boka source is situated at an altitude of 725 m.
The average water temperature is 4.5 ºC.
Access to the Boka waterfall
The Boka waterfall is clearly visible from the Bovec-Žaga road. A marked, steep mountain trail leads from the right side of the bridge to a beauty spot that can be reached in 15 min at a leisurely pace.
