It is a hill that rises above the Ribno Alpine Resort and you have to conquer it. A marked and in some places protected path will take you to a 587 m high peak, from which you will have a beautiful view of the ‘image of paradise’, at all 360 ° degrees. When you turn around your axis, on the south side is the blue-green Sava Bohinjka, which winds in a hidden ‘valley’ between Jelovica and Pokljuka. Through the branches of the old loners, a part of Lake Bled with the church quickly appears, then the view captures the Julian Alps with Triglav, and then the Karavanke and the whole plain, which stretches in the distance.

Followed by a half-hour walk through the 1,600-meter-long gorge carved by the emerald-green mountain river Radovna. The path through the gorge is led over wooden bridges, from which you can easily observe the waterfalls, rapids and pools created by the river during its flow through the gorge. A well-maintained easy path through the gorge ends with a bridge over the mighty, approximately 15 m high Šum waterfall. In summer we recommend a visit during the week.
