Waterfalls of Blanščica are the most dramatic
one in the area of the Bohor highland. Chain of the upper waterfalls has
caved a water chanel in a dolomite. Total height of all waterfalls which
could be one in at least 4 stages is almost 50 m (~150 feet). The highest
waterfall (17 m ~ 51 feet) which flows out of such a cavity is named Pekel
and it means "Infernal" waterfall. There is the idea to name waterfalls
above it with Nebesa Heaven).
ACCESS:From Sevnica or Krško to the settlement Blanca.
There follow a asphalt road just along the bank of the Blanščica brook.
Near the G. Leskovec is a crossroad - just follow a road which
is along the Blanscica to the Požun farm. The road is a private propety so be respectfull.From the Požun farm house leads a rut into the
ravine of the brook Blanscica. It leads above the brook so it is easily
to miss the the first waterfall up to the stream. It has height of about
5 m (~15 feet) and it is almost 3 m (~ 9 feet) wide.
Waterfall is hidden at the bottom
of the ravine.There is no path to it.The rut changes into the path
wery soon. The ruins of old Pozun mill are still noticable. After 20 min
of the walk from the entrance into the ravine slope becomes wery steep
and waterfall Pekel appeared. It is the highest one of the Blanščica waterfalls
(17 m ~ 51 feet) but it could be the lowest part of the multi stage waterfall
with the total height of about 50 m (~ 150 feet).Very steep path leads to the top of
the upper waterfalls. It is recomended for the more experienced hikers
with the boots. In the middle of the upper watefalls - "Nebesa". Height is about 15 m. Below is another waterfall
with the same height.
