    The Lower Lakes

    by croisbeauty Updated Jan 12, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is panoramic view of the two Lower lakes, Kaludjerovac and Milanovac, in between of which stands the natural barriere with the Great Cascades and so-called Šupljara.
    The walking tour starts along the right shore of the lake Kaludjerovac and continues across the natural barriere turning along the left shore of the lake Milanovac.

    by the Kaluderovac lake

    by picek Updated Jan 20, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kaluderovac belongs to Lower group of lakes and it's the first one you'll see if your entry is through Northern gates to NP (Entry 1). You'll descend onto some 508 meters above sea level, to see the lake which max. depth is 14 meters. Lots of people stop here to admire the fish and birds and ducks in crystal clear water. Some are feeding them, but you're discouraged to do so.

    Like most of lakes here, it has impressive turqoise color and if you continue along wooden path you will enter some lovely views towards the Great waterfall.

    Plitvice lower lakes

    by aukahkay Updated Oct 11, 2010

    Plitvice’s 16 lakes are divided into the Upper Lakes (gornja jezera) and the Lower Lakes (donja jezera). The park officially has two entrances, each with ticket windows and snack and gift shops. Put on your best walking shoes—Plitvice’s system of trails and boardwalks makes it easy for you to get close to the park’s beauty.

    Lower Lakes

    by monkeytrousers Written Jul 30, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The lower lakes consist of a series of small pools and lakes with some nice streams running alongside the pathways. There is a also a small elevated cave here which you can climb up to. You can walk up the road at P3 on the lower lake end of Jezero Kozjack to get some spectactular views of the lower lakes from atop the cliffs.

    Ferry Ride On Lower Lake

    by Mikebb Updated Jun 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A ferry ride is the perfect way to view the scenery, and what a perfect day to be on the water with a clear sky and sun to help keep us warm. We caught the ferry after lunch from the restaurant area on the side of the lake. There is a large restaurant and outside this restaurant are 6 or 7 small stalls operated by local peasants selling home made local foods which were the favourite for our group.

    Some Waterfalls on Lower Lakes

    by Mikebb Updated Jun 12, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wherever you walked you could always hear running water, often you would feel the fine spray in the air as water fell down a nearby waterfall.The ice had now gone from the boardwalk but it was still chilly and we appreciated any sun which filtered through the tree canopy. The brisk walk kept us warm and the beauty of the area was outstanding, everywhere you looked you could see something to capture your interest, the bubbling streams which quickly turned into ponds containing petrified twigs and leaves, the colours were beautiful.

    Between Gavanovac & Milanovac

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 9, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The area between Gavanovac and Milanovac Lakes is rich of crystal clear water, cascades and waterfalls.
    I suggest you to take off your shoes here and walk through the water, it is amazing feeling.

    The Lower Lakes - Šupljara

    by croisbeauty Updated Jun 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The crossing path in between Kaludjerovac and Milanovac, turn on the left to visit the bear cave or streight on in direction of Milanovac Lake. Sometimes in the autumn or winter time, when the lakes are rich of water, you might need umbrella when passing by.

    Plitvicka, Milanovac lake closeup

    Thsi is one of the worst points on the trip. Here you are in blazing beauty, a perfect blue/green/aquamarine lake sitting there in front of you and YOU CANNOT SWIM IN IT.....aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggg...

    But thats okay, if we can preserve it for everyone to see that is better. But it truly does take some willpower not to throw off your clothes and jump in...

    hiking the southern trails

    by call_me_rhia Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Originating from the park entrance number 1 there are two trails to follow: the orange one (3-4 hours) and blue one (3-4 hours) which take in different sections of the lower lakes. They both include the boat trip over the main lake - pass some smaller lakes and waterfalls en route - and especially take you to the higest waterfall inthe park - which is really a stunning waterfall. Both trails are clearly signposted... so just head for the one that captures your fancy

    The lower lakes are the the heart of the park. Just have a look at the crystal clear water, have a walk on the wooden deck up to the waterfall.

    Plitvicka, Milanovac lake with trees

    by Martin_S. Written Oct 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This part of Milanovac lake is split into two parts by the trees and some very small waterfalls, it could be that the lower section which is much smaller does not have a name.

    This is Milanovac lake as seen from the south, looking northward. If you look closely you can see the boardwalk along the far shore, just there under the trees lining the waters edge.
