Triglav Lakes – Double Lake
1-day tour, Planina Blato to Planina Blato
A sunny open trail, enchanting rolling hills and pastures, sunlit mountains towering above green lakes, and meadows of pink flowers. A place one could easily find in a fairytale, the Double Lake is perfect for young families and those who wish to take it easy and simply enjoy pristine nature of the Triglav National Park. Recommended for anyone throughout the year.
Starting above Lake Bohinj from the Blato Plateau, we first follow the signs for the picturesque plateau Planina pri Jezeru (Plateau by the Lake). We then turn our route towards the second plateau called Dedno Polje, and yet another plateau afterwards called Planina Ovčarija (Sheep Plateau). Finally, as we approach the towering mountains above a long Alpine valley, we know we just crossed over to the high-lying Valley of the Triglav Lakes and soon after we reach the Double Lake Hut. Please note that it's about 3.15 hours to the Double Lake Hut for adults, which should make a 5-hour walk up for young families. Highly recommended to extend the trek over two days, spend the night in the Double Lake Hut and return to the valley the next day.
