Access to starting point:

From Vrhnika or Podpeč we drive to village Borovnica. Here we turn in village Brezovica at Borovnica. As soon as the road crosses a railway with an underpass, we turn right. We follow this road all the way to a parking lot at the end of the road.

Path description:

We start at the parking lot and orient on a turistic path going past marks where a valley is described first over a meadow. Path soon crosses a brook over a bridge. It goes back to a right bank through a bridge later. Path starts rising slightly and brings us to smallest almost 4 metres high first waterfall.Path rises then and brings us to a crossroads. Left over a bridge is a second waterfall which is 30 metres away. We return to the crossroads where we orient towards third waterfall. Here a little decaying table is standing. Here is a nice view towards a waterfall falling into a small lake. Path then rises steeply on long stairs which are exposed to falling rocks. Couple of wedges follow and the path brings us to a crossroad at viewing point. We orient on the left way which crosses a steep slope, dangerous for slide in wet. Path then brings us to a bridge. We cross it and the path starts steeply rising on the other side. Path then crosses a brook over a bridge and brings us to the point where an orientation is a bit difficult. Here is a large amount of paths but they all soon end except for the right one. The right path leads us on the left side of the brook and with some help of wire cable brings us to the fourth waterfall. Gradient then goes on a steep slope which demands a safe step. Then we come to the nex bridge with some help of wire cable. Here are small river beds under us. Path keeps rising on a slope which is steep in some places. Then it again draws near the water. A short descent towards a brook follows. A nice view towards fifth waterfall opens there. I recommend a descent over Pristava. We cross the brook at fifth waterfall. On the other side we rise on a car track till the road where we orient to right. After 3 minutes of walkin a wide marked car track branches to right. We orient on it and it brings us on a road in village Pristava. From now on we follow marks for restaurant Pekel.

On the way: Soteska Pekel 1. slap (380m), Soteska pekel 2. slap (410m), Pekel Gorge 3rd waterfall (445m), Soteska pekel 4. slap (500m)
