Slovenia: Weekend in Bovec: Day 3 - Hike to Rombon, Chill-out in Soča

For my Birthday I received a coupon for Canyoning in Fratarica and this weekend I decided to redeem it. Since it was a 5 hour event only, Nada, Rok and me decided to spend the whole weekend in Bovec area, doing various things.

On Sunday, our last day, we conquered Rombon, 2208 m high mountain. Off course we chose a bit more difficult way there, over Vrh Ribežnov, 2018 m, with grassy and from time to time pathless terrain. Anyway, we made it and after a couple of photos we descended down, past more WW1 fortifications to Veliki Rob, 1313 m, the position of the Austro Hungarian artillery observatory. From there we just continued down past Fort Herman to Kluže Fortress, where our car was waiting for us.

Quickly we moved to the shop in Bovec, where we took care of our hydration needs and continued to Camp Gabrje, where we relaxed in Soča river with a couple of nice cold beers.

2 day hike from Kluže Fortress to Zavrzelno and Planina Goričica, where we spent the night. In the morning we continued to Vrh Ribežnov and then to our destination Rombon, 2208 m, followed by a descent over Veliki Rob (Kota 1313) back to Fort Kluže.

Soča, cold and very refreshing
