The world of Fužinarske planine pastures (ironworks pastures) is located between Pršivec and Hribarice, Triglav Lakes and Voje Valley. This is a high mountain plateau with karst and jagged relief, covered with forest and pastrues, at a high altitude, it is covered with dwarf pines. Fužinarske gore mountains rise above the pastures. Marked trails run to Pršivec and peaks on the west edge of the plateau above the Triglav Lakes Valley. Other trails are not marked or the mountains can be accessed along unmarked trails. Thus, this mountain area is not frequently visited by hikers. But pastures and mountain lodges there are quite often visited. The most popular is Koča na Planini pri Jezeru mountain hut that is located in the heart of Fužinarske planine pastures. There are a few shepherd lodges near the hut and the lake below them, after which the pasture got its name.
The trail across Dedno polje and Ovčarija pastures as well as over the Čez Štapce pass runs to koča pri Triglavskih jezerih mountain hut that is located near Dvojno jezero lake below the walls of Tičarica. From there you can hike to Na Kraju pasture and Koča pod Bogatinom mountain hut as well as past Črno jezero lake over Viševnik and Planine pastures near Jezero and back to the starting point.
One of the most significant sites along the trail is Črno jezero lake which is the lowest lying lake of all Triglav Lakes and is one of the most beautiful high mountain lakes in Slovenia. The lake that lies in the valley of Lopučniška dolina, is embedded between the pine forest and the steep slopes of Stador, with its position and dark colour, it gives a sense of mysteriousness and peace.
Prior to every hike, check the weather forecast and trail conditions.
Bathing or any other recreational activities are prohibited in Triglav lakes. All garbage must be carried to the valley and not left on pastures.
