    Après une montée sous l'orage, pluie et grêle : très mauvaise expérience au refuge des Sept lacs : ayant opté pour le dortoir, la gardienne m'envoie dans le "refuge d'hiver", une cabane dont la porte et une fenêtre sont cassées et des souris en prime. Pour ça j'ai dû payer 10.50€, alors qu'il n'était pas dit sur la liste de prix que le dortoir n'était pas dans le refuge principal. Par ailleurs, le refuge d'hiver est gratuit d'habitude. J'ai eu beau protester, elle n'a rien voulu savoir. Pour moi, ce n'est pas une gardienne de refuge au sens où l'entend en France !

    The hut Dom na Komni is modern and to eat there is like to be in a restaurant (excellent Apfelstrudel). The weak point is the lack of shower. No hot water neither. It is posible to make R11+R12 in one day. Beautiful way along the lakes and the Karst landscape.

    Dom na Komni: große / moderne Hütte aber relativ teuer! Bettenlager mit Frühstück (nur Müsli) ca 25 Euro. (Bei Bettenlagerwahl keine Duschgelegenheit, nur WC)

    Cheminement en montagnes russes dans le Karst. Les repères disparaissent, parmi les pins, les bosses et les creux mais l'arrivée au lac Dvojno jezero est un enchantement

    Rollercoaster journey in the Karst. The marks disappear among the pines, bumps and hollows, but the arrival Dvojno jezero Lake is a delight
