Peričnik Waterfall in the Vrata Valley must be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Slovenia. Well, actually, there are 2 waterfalls: the upper one is 16 m high and the lower one is 52 m high. It will only take you 10 minutes from the mountain hut Koča pri Peričniku (accessible by car) to reach the bottom of the falls, and then you can even walk behind the lower waterfall, admiring the magic mother Nature created. In winter both waterfalls turn into innumerable icicles in shades of green and blue. A truly spectacular sight.
As if the beauty of nature wasn’t enough we got this amazing opportunity to share some of the most beautiful winter photos of Peričnik Waterfall by Marko Korošec, a storm chaser and an award winning photographer, focusing on the extreme weather photography worldwide. Be sure to check his homepage for more amazing photos or follow him on one of his workshop. Next one is just around the corner!
Thanks, Marko! Much appreciated!
