Krnsko jezero Lake is a glacial lake situated under Mount Krn (2244 m). It is the largest alpine lake in Slovenia & it lies at an altitude of 1391 metres. Krnsko jezero lake is 400 metres long, 150 metres wide and up to 17 metres deep.
There are many paths going to the lake but we (as most of the visitors) choose the one from Dr. Klemen Jug House in Lepena. It took as a little more than 2 hours to get to the lake. The path is clearly marked, rocky trail that mostly leads through beautiful forest.
The lake is surrounded by some really amazing mountains, Mount Krn being the king of them all. You can spend a night or two in the nearby mountain hut and take some trips to the mountains around. If you want to see the lake at its best and take the best photos, sleeping in the hut is a must since nothing beats the sunset and the magnificent reflection of the nearby summits in the water.
If you are thinking about swimming in the lake – forget it! 🙂 Swimming in the lake is not permitted, as it could endanger its sensitive water ecosystem.
The plural name of the Krnska jezera lakes refers to the Veliko (Krnsko) jezero lake, the Dupeljsko jezero lake and the smaller Jezero v Lužnici lake. You can find both nearby.
