    The hidden cemetery

    by egonwegh Updated Aug 6, 2013

    Lake Bohinj area, church and war cemetery

    We spent some time at the lower terminal of the cable lift that took us up to the ski resort Vogel. Jennie stumbled upon this hidden cemetery on the south side of the lake. It would seem that soldiers fighting in World War I were buried here after a skirmish in this region.

    Waterfall Slap Savica

    Lake Bohinj area, Slap Savica waterfall
    2 more images

    In the vicinity of Lake Bohinj (towards the northwestern tip of the lake) you'll find the waterfall Slap Savica. We had a quick and affordable lunch near the lakeside - mixed salad, coffee and tea for 10 euro - before attempting the ascent of the more than 500 steps that led us the waterfall. You'll find that there are in fact two waterfalls next to each other, the tallest of which - according to our book - measures 75 meters (246 feet). Not bad at all, especially when measured by Dutch standards.

    Church of Ribcev Laz

    The church of Ribcev Laz near Lake Bohinj. I especially liked the exterior painting of St. Christopher, who happens to be one of my favourite saints (see for example the picture I made in Vitt on the island of Rügen )

    Climb Orlove Glave

    Lake Bohinj, on the mountain plain near Vogel
    4 more images

    It's an easy walk from the ski hotel Vogel (also upper terminal of the cable lift) to the nearby mountain top Orlove Glave. In one of these pictures you can see the two of us right on top of this modest elevation in the area with our backs to the cross that has been placed there. Afterwards, we moved on to the waterfall Slap Savica.

    Ski Resort Vogel

    by egonwegh Updated Jun 16, 2012
    Lake Bohinj, ski resort Vogel
    1 more image

    This is the Ski Resort Vogel, altitude approx. 1535 meters. We went up by cable-lift from Lake Bohinj's southern shores. We paid 27 euro (2 persons) for this relatively short trip. You'll get a great view of Mt. Triglav during the way up!

    Because we visited the area in spring time (May 2012) I must admit that the mountain plain or alm was rather deserted. From here we made a short walk across the 'waste land' towards Orlove Glave.

    Make your way to the cable car

    Avoid this if you're scared of heights

    We took the cable car at the Vogel Ski Centre. This hourly service gives some great views on the way up.

    Once at the top there are several bars for the apres ski crowd but these were mostly shut when we visited.

    We had a walk up some of the ski runs and were treated to some fantastic views.

    Boat trip on Lake Bohinj

    by clivedinburgh Written Nov 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our friends took this trip which runs the length of the lake to the campsite near the Vogel cable car. There is a commentry during the trip highlighting the surrounding views and nature.

    The lake appeared to be full of fish from what we could see from the shore.

    Ribcev Lev

    Church of St John and bridge at Ribcev Lev

    There are two tourist offices in the village (Bohinj & Alpine) giving you lots of options of excursions/activities.

    There is a small shop which is ideal for stocking up on snacks/picnic food.

    The church of St John is also worth a look and the World War I memorial is a good sculpture.

    Walk around Lake Bohinj

    The lake is well worth a hike around and we met several groups out enjoying the autumn air. There are two paths that you can take along the south shore (we took the lower one) but the north shore path hugs the shoreline virtually the whole length of the lake.
