The Kriška jezera lakes (2158 m)

Kriški podi

Situated in the mountainous surroundings of Kriški podi, there are four Alpine lakes, important natural treasures in the Triglav National Park.

The Kriška jezera lakes are surrounded by the Julian Alp summits of Razor, Planja, Križ, Stenar, Bovški Gamsovec and Pihavec. They are some 500 m higher than the nearby mountains. Inhabited by marmots, chamois and ibex, in the summer this picturesque area glows with the colours of typical Alpine plants.
