This route passes through the impressive Vrata valley, which is surrounded by two-thousanders. Most of the route follows an tarmac road through the forest and the valley to Aljažev dom, and eventually to the Peričnik waterfall, which descends into the valley in two cascades (the lower of which is 52 m tall). The end of the valley leads out of Slovenia's only national park, Triglav National Park.
